Launch of new community space under Bukit Merah Viaduct

SLA transformed the State land under Bukit Merah Viaduct into a new community space for residents’ recreational use with the construction of a hard court and installation of key infrastructure for electricity, water, and lighting.

The development of the new multi-functional community space under Bukit Merah Viaduct was done in consultation with Tanjong Pagar-Tiong Bahru Citizens’ Consultative Committee (CCC) to cater to the needs of residents.

The space, coined Viaduct@JBM, was launched on 29 April 2017 by Adviser Ms Indranee Rajah who shared with us her thoughts, “By adapting Viaduct land into a multi-functional community space, we bring life to the barren space under the Bukit Merah Viaduct. This community space is one where residents may gather, play and bond together and represents an innovative approach by the SLA to maximise land resources within our land-scarce nation”.
