District Maps:

Previously, the area was largely forest and scrubland and was mainly used as a military training ground. Though relatively undeveloped today, Forest Town Tengah has great potential and will offer fresh experiences for future residents
The town is surrounded by lush greenery and has five planned housing districts, each with a unique character;It has the first "car-free" town centre, providing a safe environment for walking and cycling;
Plantation District: the home of community farming, with a Community Farmway running through the precincts. There will be opportunities for facilities like organic markets and farm-to-table dining.
Garden District: framed by Tengah Pond and Central Park. This picturesque setting will be complemented by the garden-themed farmway where healthy and active living will be encouraged.
Park District: positioned as the hub and heart of the Forest Town. It includes the vibrant town centre which will be car-free. The district will be surrounded by lush landscape and the Forrest Corridor
Brickland District: the district will have unobstructed views towards the Forest Corridor, where urban living synergizes with nature
Forest Hill District: surrounded by the Forest Corridor and greenery and is stone's throw away from the Town Centre.
Future residents can look forward to convenient modes of transport within and outside the town. They will benefit from the future 24km Jurong Region Line in their commute. Mobility corridors will also be planned;

HDB Masterplan:

This is the first BTO launch in Tengah, Singapore's first new town in more than 20 years since Punggol. This BTO launch will offer 1,620 units of 2-Room Flexi, 3-Room, 4-Room, 5-Room and 3Gen flats. Bounded by the Kranji and Pan-Island Expressways, Bukit Batok Road and Brickland Road, Tengah is located between the existing towns of Jurong East, Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Batok. Tengah is expected to grow to about 700 ha, roughly the size of a Bishan town, and to be fully developed into a town with 42,000 new homes in two decades.
Another Map:

HDB 3 Room: $170,000-$200,000

MRT Jurong Regional Line Masterplan:

The 24-kilometre long Jurong Region Line (JRL) will add 24 stations to the existing rail network, including three interchange stations at Boon Lay, Choa Chu Kang and Jurong East MRT stations, which will link to the North-South Line and East-West Line.
The JRL will open in three stages starting 2026:

Phase 1 (2026): JRL (West) comprises 10 stations linking Choa Chu Kang to Boon Lay and Tawas;
Phase 2 (2027): JRL (East) comprises seven stations providing connection between Tengah and Pandan Reservoir; and
Phase 3 (2028): Extensions into NTU in the west and Jurong Pier in the south, completing the JRL (West) route.

Note that Tengah will be the central interchange for JRL (West) and JRL (East).
This line is confirmed to be above ground.
