"The move would free up prime land occupied by the terminals in the city area for redevelopment and result in more efficient port operations."
"This means that the city terminals at Tanjong Pagar, Keppel and Brani, plus those at Pasir Panjang will eventually be merged at Tuas. The port leases at Tanjong Pagar, Keppel and Brani will end in 2027."
"Now, Singapore has five container terminals - Tanjong Pagar, Keppel, Brani, Pasir Panjang Terminal 1 and Pasir Panjang Terminal 2. Containers are often trucked between these terminals for transhipment, adding to time taken, business costs and road congestion. Consolidation will eliminate this need for inter-terminal haulage. The new port will also give a clean slate and the chance to introduce more advanced technology and processes to meet future challenges."
