For the future, Sungei Kadut will be a place for residents and the public to relax, with farmers’ markets and farm-to-fork restaurants.
Trendspace will be for furniture and related industries, whereas TimMac will be for timber, metal and machinery industries. There is also Kranji Green at Sungei Kadut North which will accommodate waste management and recycling firms.
Agri-Food Innovation Park (AFIP)
Agri-Food Innovation Park with a large size of around 18 hectare will be home to companies and research and development centres catering to high tech production segments including indoor farming, aquaculture hatcheries and alternative protein manufacturers. This will bring us to one step closer to Singapore’s goal of producing 30% of its nutritional needs by 2030, a crucial initiative for future stability.
This will attract high value, knowledge-based jobs such as systems engineers, plant scientists and aquaculture nutritionists. The objective is making Singapore to be a leading urban agriculture and aquaculture technology hub. This will also help to improve the productivity of the local farms and strengthen Singapore food security.
Sungei Kadut MRT Station
The Sungei Kadut MRT Station will be a planned station in between the Kranji and Yew Tee MRT Stations. Come mid-2030s, this will be an interchange with 2 major MRT lines; the North South Line (NSL) and Downtown Line (DTL) via a connection from Bukit Panjang MRT Station.
Sungei Kadut station will serve residents in nearby towns, such as Yew Tee and Choa Chu Kang. It will also benefit those working at the up and coming industrial developments in Sungei Kadut.
Another significant note is that the North South Line will connect to Woodlands, within 3 stops. This will give business in this area more business advantages in terms of manpower access and logistics.
Expansion of Food Factories and Facilities at Mandai
Mandai is strategically transforming to a major Food Processing Business District in Singapore, keeping close to Sungei Kadut Eco District. There is much potential for food production synergy.
There are a number of established food factories and facilities already established at Mandai. More areas, especially those with under-utilised plot ratio, may be developed into food factories.
In 4th quarter 2022 and 1st quarter 2023, there will be two freehold food factories to be launched. Each cater to different segment of the markets. One of them essentially caters to small production units and the other cater to mid to large production units.
If you are keen to know about one which allow 40 footer access at the ground floor and 20 footer access at level 2 to level 2, this would be CT Foodnex.
