This is a revision of Port Marine Notice No. 221 of 2008. The working area and working period have been revised.

With effect from 21 Apr 09 to 20 Oct 09, 24 hours daily including Sundays and Public Holidays, at the western part of Singapore (see attached plan):

The reclamation works involve shore protection and other ancillary works by the crane barges. The grab dredgers will be carrying out dredging, and the trailer-hopper-suction dredgers and hopper barges will be deployed to deposit reclamation materials. The crane barges and grab dredgers will be held in position by 4-point anchor mooring. Soil investigation will be carried out periodically by the jack-up barges.
