Woodlands Remaking Our Home

Woodlands is set to become a "Star Destination of the North" under HDB's Remaking Our Heartlands (ROH) programme. There are 6 star attractions that will be established in Woodlands under the renewal plans!

 


STAR ATTRACTION #1: WOODLANDS REGIONAL CENTRE

Two major areas of Woodlands - Woodlands Central and Woodlands North Coast – will be expanded and integrated into a bustling Woodlands Regional Centre with new commercial and residential developments.

Woodlands will also benefit from developments in transport links. 3 new MRT stations will be introduced in Woodlands by 2019 to serve residents in the town. This will be joined to the future Johor Bahru – Singapore Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link. Additionally, the future North-South Corridor will make travelling from the north to the rest of Singapore seamless and convenient.

The Woodlands Waterfront – a popular recreational spot for residents – will also be transformed. A new rustic park, with trails and a nature promenade, will enable residents to enjoy abundant greenery even as they unwind by the waterfront.

STAR ATTRACTION #2: WOODSVISTA GALLERY

Woodlands Central will now be directly connected to the Waterfront via the new scenic WoodsVista Gallery. Set amidst nature, the WoodsVista Gallery will be a 1.9-kilometre-long community link with dedicated cycling and pedestrian paths. Residents will be able to walk, jog or cycle easily from the heart of Woodlands Town to the waterfront; or simply relax with neighbours and friends amid scenic views of the town at rest points and activity nodes along the route.

STAR ATTRACTION #5: COMMUNITY NEXUS

A cluster of various key community facilities will serve as a new Community Nexus, located conveniently at the doorstep of the Admiralty MRT station. 

Kampung Admiralty will bring together 2 blocks of housing for the elderly, a medical centre, eldercare and childcare centres, retail shops, a hawker centre and a Community Park all under one roof. Next to Kampung Admiralty, shopping mall Admiralty Place will soon undergo upgrading works to complement the upcoming Kampung Admiralty.

For residents longing for a retreat into nature, the nearby Woodlands Admiral Garden will be upgraded with improvements to existing facilities and landscaping. Additionally, there will be an enhanced pedestrian mall which links directly to Admiralty MRT, offering a lush and restful environment for residents to rest and interact.

STAR ATTRACTION #6: SOCIAL CORRIDOR

Connecting these many new facilities and hubs within Woodlands, extensive green corridors along key roads throughout the town will provide residents a more scenic walking and cycling experience. Be it a stroll or a ride through the park connector which runs from the East to the West of Woodlands, residents can enjoy an ecological network furnished with rich greenery, community gardens and facilities that cater to multi-generations along the park connector and MRT viaduct.

Other facilities

Beyond these six star attractions, residents can also look forward to the rejuvenation of key facilities in your town and existing neighbourhood centres and parks so as to holistically improve the living environment. Existing upgrading programmes such as Neighbourhood Renewal Programme (NRP) and Home Improvement Programme (HIP) will continue to take place in the eligible precincts to sustain the quality of living spaces. A new 5-storey commercial development with hawker centre, supermarket and shops is expected to begin operation at Woodlands Street 12 by the end of the year, providing residents with a greater selection of food and retail.
