Under the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme, projects have
been implemented at several stretches along Kallang River, bringing vitality back to
the waterfront. Works are underway for an ABC Waters and drainage upgrading
project between Bishan Road and Braddell Road. When completed by 4Q2018, this
1.8km stretch of the river will see a meandering stream complemented with planter
islands and cascading waters within the canal, adding variety to the waterscape. A
rain garden that cleanses rainwater runoff before discharging it into the river is also
part of the design. Residents and visitors can also get closer to the waters from
cantilevered decks, which will be integrated with the upgraded park connectors along
the waterfront.
In addition, Kallang Basin is home to the Sports Hub and many sporting activities and
events. Together with the old Kallang Airport and Kampong Bugis, Kallang Basin is
envisaged as a waterfront precinct for lifestyle, recreation, and work.

The redevelopment of the park was under the Active, Beautiful, Clean Waters (ABC Waters) Programme, which is a long-term strategic initiative to enhance the waterbodies and bring Singaporeans closer to water so that they can appreciate and cherish this precious resource.

The overarching goal of the 76.7 million SGD ($56.3 million USD) project, part of ABC Waters Programme and carried out at Kallang River at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, was to enhance the drainage infrastructure within the built environment whilst bringing people closer to water. The projectís main focus was to increase the capacity of the river channel through bio-engineering to prevent the nearby roads from flooding during heavy rainstorms, and to provide a more natural and beautiful area for wildlife and citizens.

In Singapore, rainfall statistics since 1980 have shown an increasing trend in the frequency of heavy rainfall events. When designing the expansion of the Kallang River to cater for higher-intensity storms, PUB - Singaporeís National Water Agency - did not adopt the conventional approach of creating a bigger concrete drain. Instead, it worked with NParks to explore how the river could be blended with the picturesque park while carrying a higher flow of stormwater. This could also create more value for the park users.

The Kallang River runs through Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Previously a concrete canal, it was transformed into a naturalized river with bioengineered river edges that meanders through the park so people can get closer to the water. PUB and NParks, the National Parks Board, worked together with consultants Ramboll Dreiseitl Studios and CH2M Hill Singapore on this innovative drainage improvement project to increase the capacity of the waterway yet providing a useable green space for the public to enjoy.

PUB launched the ABC Waters Programme in 2006. By integrating the drains, canals, and reservoirs with the surrounding environment in a holistic way, the ABC Waters Programme aims to create beautiful and clean streams, rivers and lakes with enhanced public spaces for the community to enjoy. PUB worked closely with government agencies and consultants to develop watershed masterplans. PUB also solicited public feedback in workshops and outreach campaigns, involving the community, including through an ABC Waters Exhibition in 2007.

Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park is one of the biggest and most popular parks in Singapore and has not had a major upgrading since it was built in 1988. At the same time, PUB also has plans to upgrade the Kallang River. Given this, NParks and PUB reviewed their individual development plans and the project became a joint collaboration between both agencies.

However, it is unlikely to be triggered for tender in the next 12 months due to the complexity and large amount of capital required for the development, he says, adding that the land price could range between $6 billion and $7 billion. According to URA, the entire development of the site is expected to be completed over 11 to 13 years.
