Massive reclamation at Labrador continues to Aug 09

This is a view of the massive reclamation just off the Labrador jetty (in the foreground).
The photo was taken from the lookout point at the top of the hill at Labrador Nature Reserve during my last field trip there. Other shores near this project include the natural shores of Sentosa and Cyrene Reefs.

Works will include reclamation, dredging, soil investigation, caisson construction, demolition of PW 1, PW 2, PW 3, PW 4 and PW 5 and removal of submarine cables and pipelines. Soil investigation works will be carried out by jack-up barges attended to by tug boats.

The reclamation is for a new container terminal at Pasir Panjang. The work site is also near the natural shore at Sentosa. This photo is from the table top model at the URA Master Plan exhibition.The project is so large that it is likely to impact Cyrene Reefs as well.The work site (in green) in relation to Cyrene Reefs (highlighted in yellow).
