Urban Redevelopment Authority
Contract 1 – Site Clearance, Earthworks, Construction of Drains, Sewers and Related Ancillary Works at Yio Chu Kang Road / Lentor Drive Area
In 2016, Samwoh was appointed by Urban Redevelopment Authority to carry out land development works covering an area of 30 hectares. The main scope of works included the site clearance, land re-profiling to facilitate future developments, construction of new drainage system to replace existing natural earth drains and laying of new sewerage line.
This massive land clearance was planned meticulously and conducted conscientiously to protect the natural eco-system and existing wildlife that resides within the forest. Due to the time taken to facilitate the migration of wildlife, the project team has a very tight timeline to complete a 1.2km-long canal, comprising different widths of 3.5 m, 6 m and 11 m.
- No wildlife was hurt during the 7-month shepherding process and all of them have been guided safely to the neighboring forest.
- Two endangered species of Sunda Pongolins were discovered and handed over to the Singapore Zoological Garden by the project team.
- This project is hailed as the largest wildlife shepherding process that has been successfully carried out in Singapore.
