Punggol station is located in the centre of Punggol 21 which, when realised, will be a new high density town, a model housing estate for the 21st Century, including designer styled contemporary homes, with waterfront shops, restaurants and entertainment facilities.
This idea is visually reinforced when viewing the station from either the north or the south as the vent shafts and cooling towers rise up and are contained within curved metallic enclosures, separating the future LRT platform and the adjoining viaduct structure.
The station interior finishes are in a monochromatic palette which include polished and honed granite, metal wall panelling, stainless steel and glass which provides a perfect surrounding for the incorporation of art work of intense colours and wonderful textures in fused glass, which are especially striking against the context of the station's clean futuristic architecture.

Then there followed a longish period through the 1970s and a little beyond when a large number of new towns were built, from Bedok and Tampines in the east, to Clementi, Ghim Moh and Jurong in the west.
But you should note that even when a new town had a name originating from Chinese, the tendency was to use the most common dialect pronunciation.
Other recent new towns, such as Choa Chu Kang and Yew Tee, have similarly retained their dialect names, and have even retained the way they have traditionally been written, with spaces between syllables.
