Sayang Sembawang September 2018

Dear Residents, 


This year marks 53 years of independence for Singapore. Residents in Sembawang GRC gathered at various events to commemorate the country's birthday and had a good time celebrating. Read on to find out how we celebrated National Day in our town.


We have lots of good news to share in this issue. The upgrading works for Jelutung Harbour Park have finally been completed! After two years of planning and hard work, we are pleased to reveal its refurbished look in this issue.


The groundbreaking ceremony for Bukit Canberra, an integrated hub in Sembawang, on 1 July 2018 was a major highlight. Many residents turned up, excited about what lay in store for them in this integrated hub. If you did not manage to join us that day, you can find out more on what you have missed in this issue.

We are embarking on a large-scale Lift Replacement Programme in Sembawang GRC.  A total of $33 million has been committed to replace 280 lifts at 135 blocks, benefiting a total of 12,600 households. When the new lifts are progressively completed from January 2019 to June 2020, residents can look forward to a more comfortable ride with greater reliability and enhanced safety in these brand new lifts.


In this issue, I would also like to share with you the precincts undergoing Neighbourhood Renewal Programme works in our town. A lot more upgrading works await us, too. With so much in store for us, we envision a more vibrant home here in Sembawang.


Sayang Sembawang!
