Singapore's desalination journey marks a major milestone with the opening of the Tuas Desalination Plant (TDP). This is the country's third desalination plant and the first to be owned and operated by PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency.
The TDP is a strategic infrastructural asset that will boost Singapore's desalination capacity from the current 100mgd to 130mgd, meeting up to 30% of the country's current water demand. By 2060, desalination is expected to meet up to 30% of Singapore's water needs then.
The TDP is a compact plant, occupying a footprint of 3.5 hectares. It can produce up to 30 million gallons a day (mgd) (or 136,000 m3) of drinking water, equivalent to the water demand of about 200,000 households.
TDP boasts of many firsts. Besides being the first plant to be owned and operated by PUB, it is also the first desalination plant in Singapore to adopt a robust pre-treatment process that combines Dissolved Air Floatation and Ultrafiltration1. Such a combination helps to reduce membrane fouling when treating seawater of varying water quality, thereby enhancing operational efficiency.

The State Courts handle about 90 per cent of Singapore's caseload, which equates to more than 300,000 cases per year. The new State Courts Towers on Upper Cross Street (located just beside the current State Courts building) are currently under construction so to meet with future needs and to support the push for an efficient, responsive and effective judiciary.
When completed, the new State Courts Towers will house more than 60 courtrooms and over 50 hearing chambers to meet the needs of society, providing better access to justice and timely dispute resolution.
The project consisting of a court tower and an office tower costs $450 million. The new State Courts Towers will stand at 178m tall with 3 basement levels and slated to be operational in 2020.

Tengah Town embodies Housing & Development Board's (HDB) vision for new towns of the future - green, sustainable and smart. The first HDB town to full intergrate with its surrounding ecosystems, it will also be the first to have a car-free town centre nestled next to a lush green park.
Guided by HDB's Smart and Sustainable framework, Tengah will offer some 42,000 residential dwelling units, providing new living opportunities in the west to meet housing needs.
Around 1,500 HDB flats will be the first to be launched in November this year at Tengah, the first new town in more than 20 years.
When it is fully developed in two decades, Tengah could comprise 42,000 new homes: 30,000 units of public housing and 12,000 units of private housing.
And when completed, Tengah will grow to about 700 hectares, which is roughly equivalent in size to Bishan Town.
Tengah was conceptualised as a unique town in Singapore and as the country's first "Forest Town" with a green theme spread across the district.
Located next to East Coast Park with existing public and private housings in the surrounding, the 60-ha Bayshore Precinct will be a new lifestyle waterfront urban village for about 12,500 dwelling units of public and private housing when ready. A 1 km-long main street will anchor the precinct, which will have wider pavements to make a more pleasant walking and cycling experience for you.
Imagine a vibrant neighbourhood where the main street is lined with shops, cafes, grocery stores, childcare and elderly facilities within a short walk or bicycle ride from home. Residents can enjoy tree-lined walkways, or cycle along dedicated cycling paths to the nearby Bayshore MRT station and Bedok South MRT station.
Bayshore Precinct is also being planned as a future-ready community, which is sustainable, people-centric and car-lite with flexibility to accommodate change over time. In the future, the use of Autonomous Vehicles may present opportunities to free up space for parks, community facilities and other uses. The master plan will anticipate changes in technology in phases, providing resiliency to adapt to the changing needs.
With over a million residents living in the west region, JLD will grow into its full potential as the largest regional centre outside of the CBD. It will also be the gateway between ASEAN and Singapore, where it will be home to the Kuala-Lumpur-Singapore High-Speed Rail terminus.
JLD is strategically located near high-value industries, the future Tuas Port, two world-class research universities, and offers convenient connections to the city and Malaysia.
The High-Speed Rail to Kuala Lumpur will open new markets and opportunities in a metropolitan region of more than 10 million people. It will enhance the flow of talent and travellers, facilitate knowledge, business and cultural exchanges, and stronger social links to make JLD an attractive hub for regional businesses..
Building on the existing cluster of firms and public agencies in Jurong Gateway, JLD could be a hub for infrastructure development firms. It also offers an attractive location for firms in the maritime services sector, given its proximity to the new port and the surrounding industrial and logistics clusters.
