Marina Barrage Singapore

The Singapore Marina Barrage is a dam.
Officially opened on 1st November 2008.
The nine gates at the mouth of the Marina Channel keeps the seawater out.
Making the Marina Basin into a freshwater reservoir.
This 10,000-ha catchment is the largest and most urbanized reservoir of the country's
15 water reserves.
Here's to share the pictures I have taken of the place.
I went in the evening and could still catch some bright views.
Apparently, going to the Barrage in the afternoon can be very hot.
Large constructions are currently going on in the vicinity.
Be CAREFUL of heavy vehicles.
They seemed to predominate the roads.

During the earlier part of the evening at the bridge.

The pier deck.

Solar lights were used everywhere.
Security cameras were place everywhere too.
So behave yourselves.
Warning floats of...'DANGER' ... I guess NO swimming.

This bridge leads to the building that will have some restaurants.
There was an event going on during my visit.
I guess they do hold functions.

In the Pump House there are 7 mighty pumps..
And they can empty an Olympic-sized swimming pool in less than 9 seconds.

The colorful fountain with formations that synchronize with the music.

This beautiful pathway leads to the viewing deck.

Saw this fountain where children and adults were enjoying themselves.

Mini cruise boats.

Seeing the city from the viewing deck.
A lovely view, with the lights slowly starting to glow as the night falls.

I was so captivated and immersed by the surrounding scenery.

This 'Green Roof' structure has a lift that goes down to the ground level.
Will be good for elder folks.

As it got darker, the lights got brighter.
The whole scene just sparkled.

Lights lit all along the pathway.

In the night the bridge lights up.

The place was so tranquil.
People were there to relax and sink into the atmosphere.
