Three new employment areas — Jurong Lake District (JLD), Jurong Innovation District (JID) and Tuas Port will be developed in the coming years.

These green spaces will be connected by the Green Loop, which is part of an extensive park connector and cycling network that will stitch the district and neighbouring residential areas together and link these areas to the Jurong Lake Gardens.
Smart Planning: Frontier of new Initiatives
With advances in sensors and computing power, urban planners today can generate, combine and process vast amounts of data about the city. Using new digital tools, such data can be analysed and visualised in various ways, uncovering new possibilities to guide better decisions for our city.
Car-lite Area: Pedestrians Paradise
With fewer cars, roads will be narrower and beautifully landscaped, making it easier to walk, cycle or use personal mobility devices. Car-sharing and on-demand autonomous vehicles will offer the option of a private vehicle when necessary. Car parking will be consolidated underground at the fringes of the district.
