Land Reclamation In Singapore


The Future

Limitations to land reclamation

Although Singapore has successfully increased its land area through land reclamation, there are limitations to the amount of land we can reclaim.


Limitations of technology

        Current technology only allows us to reclaim land from waters up to 15 metres in depth


        Not enough sand from within Singapore

        Cost of bringing sand to Singapore increases overall costs

Territorial constraints

        Need to keep certain amount of sea space for shipping activities

        To maintain good relationships with neighbours / without infringing on neighbours’ territories
