Work on the latest new town, Bidadari, will start by the end of the year, paving the way for 12,000 new homes to be built in central Singapore.

The site is slated for both private as well as Housing Board homes.

Depending on demand, the first Housing Board build-to-order launch may take place as early as 2015, a National Development Ministry (MND) spokesman said.
