Land in Singapore is limited. To support the needs of future generations, we need to provide options of land optimisation. Underground spaces is one of the viable solutions to creating new land capacity.
I am with the LTA Geotechnical & Tunnels Division. Our team investigates soil properties to ensure that appropriate construction methods and designs are implemented. Site Investigation is a critical aspect of the construction process in defining engineering properties of the soil for optimal design and the construction method. An incorrect definition or classification may can have an impact on the entire construction cost.
In any rail project, there are many stakeholders involved. They may be private owners or authorities or both. For private properties, works can only be conducted once the government issues the gazette on the project. All stakeholders will have their terms and conditions spelt out which we need to comply with. Often these terms and conditions are manageable. In some cases, there are constraints which require further scrutiny or tailoring of our works. A typical site investigation requires an average of 15 working days to complete. However, the process of engaging the stakeholders involved may take weeks and even years.
Engineering work is challenging and challenges keep me going. I feel a great sense of satisfaction when a road or rail project I participated in is safely constructed and is in operation. Being able to tackle these challenges has not only developed me professionally but also personally to become a better person.
Being an engineer in the Public Service provides me with opportunities to develop my skills and career. I gain experience especially through job rotations in the various departments. I also believe in doing my best to improve the lives of others. With the pipeline of upcoming mega infrastructure projects, there are many more opportunities from which I can learn and grow.
