Better drainage, new jogging and cycling track planned for Sungei Pandan Kechil: Iswaran

Clementi residents can expect better drainage and improved surroundings at Sungei Pandan Kechil, which runs through the estate.

The plan to enhance the area was announced by Minister in the Prime Minister's Office, Mr S. Iswaran, at a neighbourhood carnival organised by West Coast Ville Residents' Committee on Sunday.

"If you remember, last year because of a particularly heavy rainfall we had some flooding," said Mr Iswaran. "We have been working with the PUB to...see what we can do so that the flooding does not happen again."

Works to improve drainage as well as to build facilities like gathering decks and a new jogging and cycling track along Sungei Pandan Kechil will start this month. The project is expected to be completed by the second quarter of 2017.
