Over the years, I have been tracking the progress of the building of the Bukit Batok Hawker Centre which is to be sited near the assisted living residential units for seniors in Bukit Batok HDB Town. I sought an update on matter with the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment. In her reply, Minister Grace Fu stated that the construction works have started. The completion date will depend on the completion of adjacent HDB flats and will be announced separately. No doubt, the completion will be eagerly awaited. My parliamentary question and Minister Grace Fu’s response are set out below.

Mr Murali Pillai asked the Minister for Sustainability and the Environment whether an update may be provided on the expected start and completion dates for building the Bukit Batok hawker centre that will be co-located with the assisted living residential flats pilot in Bukit Batok Town as announced during the Committee of Supply debates in 2019.
Ms Grace Fu Hai Yien: The hawker centre at Bukit Batok, which is co-located with assisted living residential flats, is currently in the construction stage. As the hawker centre is part of a larger HDB development, the completion date of the hawker centre will be aligned with the overall progress of the HDB development, which will be completed in 2024. NEA is coordinating with HDB on the project timeline and will share the expected completion date of the hawker centre when the plans are confirmed.
