Photos of Marina Barrage
The Marina Barrage was officially opened last Friday, together with the launch of the annual Clean and Green Singapore. The new Marina Barrage is a 350-meter wide dam built across the Marina channel, forming Singapore’s first reservoir in the city and our 15th reservoir with a catchment area of one-sixth the size of Singapore.
The Marina Barrage serves several benefits such as increasing our water supply with the Marina Reservoir meeting more than 10% of our current water demand, alleviating flooding in the low-lying areas in the city, and serving as a lifestyle attraction with recreational activities such as windsurfing and kayaking.
We visited the Marina Barrage over the weekend and took some photos:
