Marina Bridge

Marina Barrage is an engineering marvel which spans the Marina Channel and allows visitors to walk across both reservoir and sea all at once. The nine crest gates are housed under the Marina Bridge. Consisting of nine 88 foot (26.8m) hydraulically operated steel crest gates spanned across the Marina Channel and seven 40 cubic metres per second drainage pumps housed within the pump building. Construction began in early 2005 and many measures were put in place to ensure that all operations would be carried out smoothly and safely.​

The Pump House

The Pump House at Marina Barrage uses glass and louvers for its external walls so that the interior is lit by natural lighting. This also eliminates the need for air-conditioning and reduces electricity consumption and operation costs.
