Polder Development at Pulau Tekong
Surbana Jurong, in collaboration with Royal Haskoning DHV, provided the overall planning and detailed engineering design of the polder development at Pulau Tekong, adding new land the size of two Toa Payoh towns for military training purposes.
This is the first-of-its-kind polder project in Singapore. The empoldering method involves building a dike around the area to be reclaimed and draining water from it, creating a low-lying tract of land below sea level. This innovation will see a reduction of sand and other infill materials used, thus lowering the cost of reclamation.
