Together, Punggol would be the best home for everyone.”
With this, there would be a consultation to the public regarding the Punggol Town Hub facilities while still collaborating with stakeholders. The public would be asked what more facilities they needed and their expectations to the project.

“We can make a house, but to build a home we are calling everyone to do their shares.”
