Woodlands Health Campus
Comprising both acute and community hospitals, a nursing home, and specialist clinics, the Woodlands Health Campus will offer quality care to residents. It will open progressively from 2022.
Bringing Jobs to the North
Providing New Growth Opportunities
Once Sembawang Shipyard’s operations cease, the site has the potential to be redeveloped into a mixed-use waterfront lifestyle precinct while taking into consideration its rich maritime history. The shipyard’s unique coastal profile presents opportunities for new waterfront public spaces. Selected buildings can also be re-purposed to introduce suitable uses that will bring new life into the area.
Green & Blue Spaces for Fun & Leisure
Providing New Play Spaces
Kranji: The Recreation & Community Hub
We will inject more recreational activities and community spaces into Singapore Racecourse so that more people from all walks of life can enjoy the place. Alongside other nearby attractions such as Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve and the Mandai wildlife parks, Kranji will become a launch pad for fun activities for families, the young and the old.

Creating New Recreational Corridors
Green Loop Around Lower Seletar Reservoir
To allow residents to enjoy Lower Seletar Reservoir, we will progressively create a green walking and cycling loop around the reservoir. Residents will be able to enjoy scenic views and seamlessly connect to the future Round Island Route from Yishun Dam.

Getting You to Places Faster
Enhancing Connectivity Across the North
2019 will see the opening of several new MRT stations and an Integrated Transport Hub (ITH):
- Canberra MRT on the North-South Line (NSL)
- Woodlands North, Woodlands, and Woodlands South MRT stations on the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL)
- Yishun ITH
By 2020, Springleaf MRT along the TEL will also open.
Residents can also look forward to the upgraded Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange, which will be connected to the Woodlands MRT interchange station when completed.
Walking & Cycling to Work & Play
Today, Sembawang and Yishun residents enjoy an extensive intra-town cycling path network that connects residential areas with key local amenities.
Moving forward, more cycling paths and park connectors will make your journeys even smoother.
When WoodsVista Gallery is ready, residents will enjoy a seamless pedestrian and cycling connection to Woodlands MRT, Admiralty Park, and all the way to Woodlands Waterfront Park.
