    An established residential area, the East region has [B]excellent amenities[/B] such as shopping areas, schools and community facilities. There are also [B]good job opportunities[/B] at Tampines Regional Centre, Changi Business Park, and the industrial estates at Paya Lebar, Loyang and Changi. Supporting all of these is the [B]extensive transportation network[/B], which includes the East-West MRT line as well as major expressways like the ECP, PIE and TPE.

    In terms of leisure, the East Region has [B]attractive coastal parks[/B], like the ever-popular East Coast Park and Pasir Ris Park, and the 42km Eastern Coastal Park Connector network which was completed in 2007. Also in the East region are [B]unique leisure destinations[/B] like rustic Changi Point and bustling Siglap Village.


    An Even Better Home

    Residents can expect more offerings to make the East region an even better place to live in, in the next 10 to 15 years. The priority will be to [B]continue enhancing the living environment[/B], by rejuvenating and upgrading mature estates and offering new housing choices at attractive locations. In tandem with the growing population, [B]more employment opportunities[/B] will be made available in the East, lessening the need to commute elsewhere. This will also help reduce congestion on the main traffic spines like the ECP and PIE. To meet the demand for more homes and jobs, [B]two new MRT lines[/B] will provide better connectivity from the East to the city and other parts of the island, so that when residents do have to travel, it will be quick and easy.
