SINGAPORE - The Punggol waterway will soon see a new Safra Club as the Government ramps up efforts to show appreciation for National Servicemen.

Details on this $57.3 million facility, slated to be completed in early 2016, were revealed by Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean at a ground breaking ceremony on Wednesday.

"The Safra Clubhouse is an important symbol," said Mr Teo, "(it) will be a constant reminder of what our NSmen are defending - our homes, families and the special Singapore that we have built together."

The five-storey 14,000 sq m club at Sentul Crescent is right next to the Punggol Waterway. It will also have a first-of-its-kind water themed playground for children.
