While Altura EC is not in the Tengah area, it is just beside it. Exciting developments await residents around Tengah.
Tengah is a new neighbourhood that is located in close proximity to relatively mature estates such as Jurong East and Bukit Batok. Tengah is designed to be Singapore’s first car-free town. With more walking and cycling paths along the roads, the aim is to reduce the use of private transport. Tengah will be the first HDB town that is planned with smart technologies town-wide from the beginning.
Residents of Altura EC will gain access to the facilities and amenities in the Tengah area, as residents will be well connected once the Jurong Region Line starts its operations.
Altura EC will also be close to the upcoming Jurong Innovation District (JID) and Jurong Lake District (JLD), which are massive projects set to transform the western region of Singapore. JLD, dubbed as the second Central Business District, is expected to create over 100,000 job opportunities for those residing in the west.
