Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Punggol, or Ponggol, is a neighbourhood in northeastern Singapore. Presently, much of Punggol is undeveloped, although plans to turn the area into a residential new town (Punggol New Town) under the "Punggol 21" initiative have begun to take place in the south-eastern parts of the area bordering neighbouring Sengkang.Punggol Point or Tanjong Punggol appears as Tanjong Rangon on Franklin and Jackson''s 1828 map of Singapore. Punggol, also spelt as Ponggol, means "hurling sticks at the branches of fruit trees to bring them down to the ground" in Malay. It could also refer to a place where fruits and forest produce are offered wholesale and carried away. These possible names indicate that Punggol was a fruit growing district. The place is said to take its name from the river Sungei Ponggol. Yet another interpretation is that it is a rendezvous point for those who await the wholesale agent who buys and takes the produce to the market.
