Western Islands is a planning area located in the Western Region of Singapore. Measuring at approximately 39.5km2, it ranks the 4th in terms of size.
Western Islands comprises a collection of islands located in the south-western waters of Singapore, namely Jurong, Bukum and Sudong Islands.
The Western Islands originally comprised 27 islands. In the 1990s, the government decided to reclaim land to form one major island, named Jurong Island. It was subsequently formed from the amalgamation of several offshore islands, chiefly the seven main islands of Pulau Ayer Chawan, Pulau Ayer Merbau, Pulau Merlimau, Pulau Pesek, Pulau Pesek Kechil, Pulau Sakra and Pulau Soraya.
The planning area is located on the Singapore Straits, with Tuas situated to its west. Pioneer, Boon Lay, Jurong East and Queenstown to its north. Southern Islands share a maritime boundary with the Western Islands.
