Extended TODs at Singapore New Towns

There are several extended TODs at master-planned predominantly residential new towns in Singapore.  Below are three powerpoint images that convey what they're doing. The long-range (Year "X") plan envisages a spider web -- a 3-tier hierarchy of radial heavy rail, orbital (mainly light rail), and tertiary AGT/people mover circulators. At two new towns -- Bukit Panhang and Sengkang -- the AGT circulators exist. The elevated AGT circulators run as figure-8 loops, tying into the metro rail and effectively extend the reach of TOD many orders of magnitude. - Robert Cervero, U.C. Berkeley
