Bridge to Lorong Halus Wetland, located at the Punggol Waterway.
Punggol Waterway, Singapore. The newly build Punggol Waterway in the north eastern part of the island nation of Singapore.
Singapore's longest man-made waterway opened to visitors on October 23 2011.
Punggol waterway was created out of barren land, and connects Punggol Reservoir to Serangoon Reservoir.
But the area has been given a facelift, making it a scenic spot for a slew of leisure activities.
Visitors can relive old memories of Punggol along the way, by stopping at this rest stop, which was an old bus stop in the area.
As the waterway is man-made, the challenge for the Housing & Development Board was how to keep the waterway clean and teeming with life.
This is done through a series of eco features - such as an eco-drain that cleanses surface run-off water before it is discharged into the waterway.
Aerators have also been installed to enhance the water quality.
