Located at the fringe of the city center, Bukit Merah is a mature residential town with generous green spaces, historic precincts, and heritage buildings. New residential developments will be injected to cater to new families who want to enjoy the comforts of a mature estate.
How towns are planned
Our towns are planned with a comprehensive range of
facilities to meet the needs of current and future residents.
These include housing, shops, schools, libraries, sports
facilities, community clubs and parks – all important in
ensuring a liveable, self-sufficient town.
The facilities are
carefully distributed across each town to ensure good
accessibility, supported by an efficient transport network.
Most towns also have commercial nodes and other
employment centers such as industrial estates and business
parks within the town or nearby, to provide job opportunities
close to homes.
