Waterway Banks offers HDB seekers standard flats. As the word suggests, this development will be hard to miss when you visit the My Waterway@Punggol as it sits on the banks of the waterway. It is located at the bend of the waterway and bound by Punggol Edgefield Plains where a wide range of commercial and recreational facilities can be found.
The closest LRT is the Damai station. It is not much of “close” as residents would have to traverse over the waterway by crossing either the Punggol Road or Edgefield Plains. It is quite a distance in fact. But from there, you’re only one station away to the Punggol MRT/LRT. However, transportation will continue to improve in future, that is for sure. So don’t worry on that!
