Pasir Ris residents can look forward to more pleasant waterways and a new hawker centre at the heart of their town in the next few years.

Nearly 1km of the town's two waterways, Sungei Api Api and Sungei Tampines, will be spruced up by 2015.

Current mangroves will be preserved, and more greenery will be planted along the canal walls. Gardens which filter rainwater through soil and plants will also be installed.

The $7 million makeover is the latest in PUB's ABC Waters programme, which aims to provide "active, beautiful and clean" waterways
