Punggol 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.

Urban development into the area has been accelerated with the introduction of better transportational options. The Tampines Expressway links up the area with the expressway network. In terms of public transport, the opening of the North-East Line, the Punggol LRT Line in January 2005, and a temporary bus interchange adjacent to the Punggol MRT Station was a great improvement over what was once a single bus route, SBS Transit's Service 82, to the area along Punggol Road.
Current buses available at the Punggol Bus Interchange are: 3, 34, 43, 83, 85, 62, and 136.
