Marina Barrage in Singapore

All you need to know about Marina Barrage in Singapore

Between the reclaimed lands of Marina East and Marina South lies the Marina Barrage, a dam that has created the new Marina freshwater reservoir. It now acts as a water source, flood control, and a new lifestyle attraction. As Singapore receives more than 100 inches of rainfall annually, floods are a regular occurrence in low-lying portions. With the barrage now erected, the water levels remain consistent all year round. Besides acting as a flood control measure, the barrage is also a crucial source of water supply in Singapore and not so important, a lifestyle attraction.

Guided tours are available at the visitor center, with 5 tours on weekdays and 3 on each weekend and public holidays. The view of downtown Singapore from the bridge holding the dam together is that of the iconic Marina Bay city skyline, offering a great photo opportunity. The information center houses a wealth of information on the history of water scarcity in Singapore since the early independence years, as well as sophisticated models of the barrage and its finer workings.
