The National Parks Board (NParks) plays a pivotal role in the redevelopment of the Sungai Buloh Wetland Reserves, Phase 1, in Singapore. This project marks a significant step in revitalizing and conserving the natural environment of Sungai Buloh, enhancing its ecological and recreational value.

Project Details:

  • Location: The project is located at Sungei Buloh in Singapore, an area of immense ecological significance and a vital wetland reserve.

  • Scope: The project encompasses a diverse scope of works, including stone works, the construction of an offshore breakwater, geofabric installation, piling works, and the placement of biodegradable bags. These works aim to restore and preserve the wetland’s ecological balance and enhance its accessibility for visitors.

Quantitative Highlights:

  • Stone Works: Approximately 7,306 cubic meters of stone are thoughtfully sourced and used in various aspects of the project, such as shoreline protection.

  • Geofabric Works: An extensive area of 10,349 square meters is covered with geofabric, an essential component in stabilizing soil and protecting against erosion.

  • Piling Works: A remarkable 29,952 meters of piling works are undertaken to support structures and walkways within the wetland reserves.

  • Biodegradable Bag Placing: A total of 16,134 biodegradable bags are placed to facilitate the natural regeneration of wetland flora and fauna.

Construction Period: The project’s construction commenced in May 2011 and reached completion in August 2012, spanning a duration of approximately 15 months. This timeline underscores the careful planning and execution required for the successful redevelopment of the wetland reserves.

NParks’ involvement in this initiative signifies their dedication to environmental conservation and the sustainable management of Singapore’s natural treasures. The Sungai Buloh Wetland Reserves now stand as a testament to the harmonious coexistence of nature and recreation.
