Southeast Coast Study, Singapore
CPG is leading a site-specific study along Singapore’s City-East Coast, awarded by the national water agency PUB via an open tender. The aim is to develop a climate resilience masterplan and formulate climate adaptation measures for integrated coastal protection to keep the population and critical infrastructure safe from flooding.
To augment its expertise, CPG signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Royal HaskoningDHV, a world leading consultant in climate adaptation and flood resilience studies. Royal HaskoningDHV will provide expertise in water management, coastal protection, and waterfront developments. The parties will work in tandem to collect data and apply key findings in design solutions to supplement the overall masterplan and protect the coastline against rising sea levels and increasingly heavy rainfall.
The study is scheduled to take around four years to complete and will cover about 60km of Singapore’s coastline across three areas (Changi, East Coast-Marina stretch, and part of the Greater Southern Waterfront district), protecting the community as well as important landmarks such as East Coast Park and East Coast Parkway against the adverse effects of sea-level rise.
This study is the first of four studies awarded by the national water agency PUB, to look at how specific parts of Singapore’s coastline can be better protected from sea level rise.
