The Mandai area, which houses the popular Singapore Zoo is set to get a major upgrade.
Speaking on a live television interview, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said that the zoo would be made "much better, and bigger". He also suggested moving Jurong Birdpark to Mandai.
The development plans will focus on enhancing and not infringing the nature reserve, Lee said.
"You want to have an attraction which is like Gardens by the Bay. So it's not a place where you just go to see some animals, but you also have public areas where you can wander around, you can take wedding pictures and you can enjoy the waterfront and watch the sunset on Upper Seletar Reservoir," he said, referring to a reservior in the area near the zoo.
