$1.35 million upgrading for Teck Whye Shopping Centre
Teck Whye Shopping Centre, comprising Blocks 137 to 146 Teck Whye Lane, has been selected by our Town Council for large-scale upgrading costing some $1.35 million. The project is the fulfilment of part of our Town Council's 5-Year Town Renewal Plan, which was showcased in April 2006.
The groundbreaking for the upgrading project was officiated by Mr Gan Kim Yong, Acting Minister for Manpower and MP for Chua Chu Kang, on 7 June 2008.
Construction works have begun and are expected to be completed in May 2009. When the works are completed, residents and retailers can expect new features such as:
- pedestrian walkways
- garden lights
- barrier-free accessibility through levelling of uneven ground and provision of ramps and railings
- two covered linkways connecting Blocks 140/143 to NTUC FairPrice and from the multi-storey carpark (Block 135A) to Blocks 137/138
- upgrading of two toilets at Blocks 138 and 144, among other improvements
