Marina Barrage, Singapore.

The view of Marina Barrage to Marina Bay during the sunset. This is HDR version from 3 exposures.

The Marina Barrage is a dam in Singapore built across the Marina Channel between the reclaimed lands of Marina East and Marina South. It was officially opened on 1 November 2008.

The Marina Barrage was conferred the Superior Achievement Award - the highest honour of the competition for the best project entry - at the AAEE Annual Awards Luncheon held in Washington, DC, USA on 6 May 2009. The Marina Barrage beat 33 other entries to take home the top prize in this year's competition organised by the American Academy of Environmental Engineers (AAEE), becoming the second project outside of USA to win the award, in the last decade.

The S$226 million project turns Marina Bay and Kallang Basin into a new downtown freshwater Marina Reservoir. It provides water supply, flood control and a new lifestyle attraction. This structure will provide flood control by changing the tide flow into the barrage.

The building of the Marina Barrage required the relocation of Clifford Pier from Collyer Quay to Marina South (see Marina South Pier).

It is open for viewing 24/7. However, the information counter is only open from 10.00am to 6.00pm. Tours for a maximum capacity of 80 people to the Visitor Centre can be arranged prior to arrival.

Lead Engineer on the project for CDM was Robert Hurdle.
