new town concept in Singapore: Tengah (登加) will have the first
car-free HDB town centre
By 2030, our MRT network will be comparable in coverage to major cities like London and New York City.
In addition, we will develop new town concepts, such as Tengah, which will have the first car-free HDB town centre, with roads constructed underground, freeing up surface spaces for public transport, activities and green spaces.
At the same time, we will encourage walking, cycling and active mobility. We have announced plans to expand the cycling network from 460 km today to around 1,320 km by 2030. We will actively do more to repurpose roads, and implement pedestrianisation where possible.
Today, of all trips taken, 64% are on mass public transport, i.e., bus and MRT. All these efforts will raise this modal share to 75% by 2030.
