Nearly 1km of the town’s two waterways, Sungei Api Api and Sungei Tampines, will be dressed up by 2015.

According to Straits time, current mangroves will be preserved, and more greenery will be planted along the canal walls. Gardens which filter rainwater through soil and plants will also be installed.

The $7 million makeover is the latest in PUB’s ABC Waters programme, which aims to provide “active, beautiful and clean” waterways. This will definitely enhance the value of properties in Pasir Ris.
