SINGAPORE – Twenty projects to upgrade water bodies like rivers and canals around the island will be completed over the next five years, according to the Public Utilities Board (PUB).

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officiated at the groundbreaking ceremony in Hougang for three of these three Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) projects on Sunday (March 20).

The three projects are at Hougang Avenue 10, Sungei Pinang and Serangoon Reservoir. These projects are part of the Housing and Development Board’s Remaking Our Heartland Programme for Hougang.

In his speech, Mr Lee said that the ABC projects have been a success.

“We have developed our waterways... not just for functional purposes so that we have... water to drink and to use but also for recreation and to improve our living environment,” he added.

The project will start from the junction of Hougang Avenue 4 and runs along Hougang Avenue 10 to Sungei Pinang next to Punggol Park. It will continue on to Serangoon Reservoir, stretching about 2.2km in total.

The project is expected to be completed by 2018.

Some 1,500 residents attended the event on Sunday. The groundbreaking ceremony was held in conjunction with the Hibiscus Family Carnival organised by Sengkang South Grassroots Organisation in the Hibiscus precinct of the division.
