Most of Changi was reclaimed from the sea. Large-scale land reclamation has been undertaken in different parts of Singapore since the 1960s. This is necessary because of the small size of the country and the rising demand for more land as the population increases.

In the early years, the fill materials evacuated from the hills in Bedok, Siglap, Tampines and Jurong were used for filling the reclamation areas. In recent years, sea sand obtained from the seabed is the main source of fill materials for reclamation. The reclamation contractors import the fill materials from the neighbouring countries such as Indonesia.
changi is an eastern area at one end of singapore The airport was constructed at the tip of the main island at Changi and required an extensive land reclamation project.

Land reclamation works involved the use of over 52,000,000m³ of landfill and seafill. Around 2km² of swamp land was cleared and filled with 12,000,000m³ of earth from the hills nearby and a further 40,000,000m³ of sand were used to fill up the seabed, creating half of the airport's total land area. Land reclamation was carried out by PentaOcean Construction of Japan.

PentaOcean is also doing some works at marina bay currently. More land has been made available for:
Building more homes in private and public housing estates
Recreational facilities for the growing population
Expanding commercial and industrial activities and transport needs (roads, expressways, the Mass Rapid Transit System, the port and airport facilities).
benefits land use planning

To optimize the varying competing land uses and also to attempt to integrate environment and development.
FUTURE Located on a 41ha site near Changi Airport, it is expected to cost between $200 million and $300 million. It will be completed in late 2011 and operate on a 30-year lease.

Proposals feature race tracks of about 4km long, grandstands for at least 8,000 spectators and auto workshop facilities. One proposal that aims to create a family and tourist destination includes video arcades, a 120-room three-star hotel, a museum and beach activities.

1. Land could be reclaimed from both swamp and sea and thus not use any of the valuable land in Singapore

2. Noise pollution from landing aircraft was minimised by the aircraft approach being over the sea.
Changi airport began operating in 1955. It is the 3rd airport built by the Singaporean Government, after Kallang airport and Seletar airport.

changi airport
Singapore Changi Airport is the main airport in Singapore.
It is about 17.2 kilometres (10.7 mi) north-east from the commercial centre in Changi, on a 13 square kilometres (5.0 sq mi) site.
Changi Airport currently has five terminals, T1, T2, T3, JetQuay CIP Terminal and Budget Terminal.
Changi Airport has two parallel runways, each 60 m wide and 4,000 m long.
One of the runway was built completely on reclaimed land. 
A new parallel, opened in 2004 is currently used only by Republic of Singapore Air Force aircraft as part of Changi Airbase (East).
This runway is expected to be extended and eventually be turned into a third runway for the airport in future expansion plans.
changi beach The Changi Beach Park is located at the northeastern tip of Singapore.
It is 28-hectare and is one of the oldest coastal parks in Singapore, retaining the “kampung” or village atmosphere of the 60‘s and 70’s.
The park is approximately 3.3 km long.
It was the site for the massacre of 66 Chinese men by the Japanese soldiers CHANGI VILLAGE Changi Village is a village at the north-eastern end of Singapore.

The first phase started on 2001 and was completed on 2003, costing S$3.5 million.
The second phase was completed in five stages from 2004 to 2006. The total cost was about S$16.7 million.

Changi Prison history of changi prison First prison and POW camp
Changi Prison was constructed by the British administration of the Straits Settlements as a civilian prison, in 1936.

During WW II, the Japanese military detained about 3,000 civilians in Changi Prison, which was built to house only 600 prisoners.
Japanese used the British Army's Selarang Barracks, as a prisoner of war camp, holding some 50,000 Allied — predominantly British and Australian soldiers.
Although POWs were rarely, if ever, held in the civilian prison, the name Changi became synonymous in the UK, Australia, and elsewhere with the POW camp.
Abt 850 POWs died during their internment in Changi during the Japanese Occupation of Singapore, a relatively low rate compared to the overall death rate of 27% for POWs in Japanese camps.
However, many more prisoners died after being transferred from Changi to various labour camps outside Singapore, including the Burma Railway and the Sandakan airfield.

Allied POWs, mainly Australians, built a chapel at the prison in 1944 using simple tools and found materials.After the war, the Chapel was dismantled and shipped to Australia, while the cross was sent to the UK. The chapel was reconstructed in 1988, and is now located at the Royal Military College Duntroon, Canberra. The Chapel 2nd prison In 2000:
prison was demolished and its inmates were relocated to a new prison complex in a neighbouring site.
In view of its historical significance, the Preservation of Monuments Board worked with the Singapore Prison Service and the Urban Redevelopment Authority to allow the front gates of the old prison to be preserved and moved to the new prison.

In 1994 Changi Women’s Prison and Drug Rehabilitation Centre was opened.

Presently, the new Changi Prison houses the most serious criminal offenders in the country, including criminal offenders who are serving long sentences and those who have been sentenced to death.
Detention site before prisoners are executed.
one of the main places (though not the only one) where judicial corporal punishment by caning is carried out.
In 1988, Singapore built a replica Chapel and Museum next to the Changi Prison. When Changi Prison was expanded in 2001, the Chapel and Museum was relocated to a new site 1 km away and the Changi Chapel and Museum was officially established on 15 February 2001.

Changi was famous for its coconut plantations in the 1800s,

In the 1860s, Changi was famous for its sago plantations. Its attractive coast, which included the beach, Pantai Chantik, was a popular picnic site.

During the assault of the Japanese invasion from Malaya in February 1942, Changi was targeted as one of the first attack points.

Changi Prison was built in 1936. During World War II, between 7,000 - 8,000 British and Australian POWs were interned here, in the main prison and at Selarang Barracks.

Bombardier Stanley Warren filled a chapel there with unforgettable Christian-inspired wall-paintings called the Changi Murals.

The Chengai trees, other plantations and the steep cliffs off the Changi Coast were cleared in 1926 to make way for Royal Air Force Base which began operations in the early 1950s.

Changi Hospital was also constructed around the same time. Soon after that Changi Hospital was converted to a military hospital where all the wounded soldiers and civilians were attended to.

Changi beaches and holiday bungalows were popular weekend retreats between the 1950s and early 1970s until land reclamation for Changi Airport began.

Changi Village was redeveloped by the Government in 1978.

Work on Changi International Airport began in June 1975, and was declared officially opened on 29 December 1981. It is today one of the most famous airports in the world.

The early Malay place name of Changi was Tanjong Rusa, which is found in the 1604 E.G. de Eredia map of Singapore. a climbing shrub, the changi ular (Apama corymbosa), which grew in the area.

The most common myth was that Changi got its name from a tall tree, the chengai (Balanscarpus heimii), which abounded in the area in the early nineteenth century.

Changi could also be a variation of the local timber named chengai. This heavy local timber is commonly used for buildings and furniture, and is valued for its strength and renowned for its deep rich colour.

SINGAPORE: Changi Airport has bounced back from third placing in 2009 to become the "World's Best Airport" this year in Skytrax World Airport survey.

In the annual survey of travellers worldwide last year, Changi was placed third, trailing behind Seoul's Incheon and Hong Kong. But this year, Changi overtook Incheon and Hong Kong to top the ranking. Changi also won the Skytrax award for Best Leisure Amenities.

This is the third Best Airport award Changi has received this year. Last month, the airport won the Top Worldwide Airport by Wanderlust and Best Airport in Asia Pacific by DestinAsian.

Changi has won the awards by Wanderlust and DestinAsian eight and five times

Since its opening in 1981, Changi Airport has won more than 340 airport awards.

Changi Airport Group's CEO, Mr Lee Seow Hiang, expressed appreciation to Changi Airport's many stakeholders for their support.

He said: "Changi's success would not be possible without the affirmation, encouragement and feedback that we have received from our stakeholders, including the millions of passengers and visitors we serve every year.

"This has motivated us to continue to improve and innovate. We are honoured to receive these awards and thank everyone for their vote of confidence."

Mr Lee added: "In an ever-competitive operating landscape, these awards are also a testament to the hard work and tireless efforts of all airport staff and partners in the Changi community to deliver the Changi Experience. I want to thank them too for their contributions."

Mr Edward Plaisted, chairman of Skytrax, said: "This is the largest ever Skytrax airport survey with 9.8 million travellers from over 100 nationalities taking part, and underlines the unrivalled, global coverage of this study.

SINGAPORE - More jet setting passengers have passed through Changi Airport with the number of passengers using the airport in the first half of this year rising 17 per cent on-year to 20.2 million.

Changi Airport Group (CAG) said some 3.6 million passengers passed through the airport last month, an increase of almost 19 per cent on-year.

It said passenger growth in June was led by traffic to and from South-east Asia, Northeast Asia, South Asia and North America.

Double-digit growth was recorded for all these regions.

Passenger traffic to Northeast Asia grew 35 per cent on-year it said, supported by more flights to Hong Kong, Macau, Taipei and Seoul.

Long-haul traffic also improved, with passenger movements to North America rising 28 per cent on-year.

CAG said full service carriers (FSCs) contributed two thirds to the growth of passenger movements in June while the low cost carriers (LCCs) contributed the reminder,

For the first half of the year, the ratio between FSCs and LCCs was 4:1 in terms of passengers carried and 3:1 for number of flights at Changi.

On the cargo front, 879,000 tonnes of airfreight were moved at Changi Airport from January to June, a 16.5 per cent increase year-on-year.

The airport serves 89 airlines operating close to 5,100 weekly scheduled flights. by Claire Huang Jingyi 05:55 AM Jul 14, 2010

SINGAPORE - While the outlook for Singapore's civil aviation sector is rosy, Transport Minister Raymond Lim warned that the European sovereign debt crisis and the geopolitical situation in Asia have the potential to derail the sector's recovery.

But he is confident that Changi Airport's success, which is built on close cooperation between the airlines, airport, and Government, will help the industry overcome future challenges.

Speaking at the annual Changi Airline Awards, Mr Lim said Changi's passenger traffic grew by about 17 per cent on a year-on-year basis in the first five months this year. The airfreight sector increased by about 17 per cent over the same period last year.

Awards were presented in six categories, including the top airlines for passenger and cargo carriage, as well as the fastest growing carriers for passengers and cargo.

This year, a new Partner of the Year award was introduced to honour a Changi partner or its collaboration with the Changi Airport Group, and for outstanding contributions to developing the air hub.

This new award went to TNT, one of the largest express delivery services providers, in recognition of its strategic efforts to develop Singapore as its Asian regional hub in its global network.

Mr Onno Boots, TNT's regional managing director for South-east Asia and India, said: "It's a recognition, an external recognition, which means a lot to us. We've started developing plans for the region to build an integrated system for air and road networks, that really joined together in Singapore, the heart of the base of the network and that was developed about four years ago."

Since 2008, when TNT picked Singapore as one of two destinations for its first freighter flights into Asia, TNT has grown its Singapore presence from just operating as a gateway to a regional hub.

This has culminated in its $20-million Singapore Regional Hub facility, the first integrated air and road hub linking Singapore through South-east Asia to China.
Changi passenger traffic up 17% Changi sees 17% rise in passengers

SINGAPORE - Motorsport enthusiasts in Singapore and the region will be able to enjoy the brand new Changi Motorsports Hub in less than two years' time, and on a 24/7 basis.

Speaking at a ground-breaking ceremony yesterday, Fuminori Murahashi, executive chairman of SG Changi Pte Ltd - the consortium awarded the tender by the Singapore Sports Council (SSC) in March to design, build and run the facility - revealed it will be open 24 hours daily, seven days a week - believed to be a world-first.

Costing $330 million, the hub is expected to be completed by the end of next year and ready for business by March 2012.

"Singapore is a country that does not sleep, but is always awake 24/7, that's why I believe this concept will succeed," said Murahashi through an interpreter.

"It must be a place where Singaporeans can come to and really enjoy."

Construction of the hub, which is located on a 41-hectare, sea-facing site near Changi Airport, will begin next month.

The centre will include among others a permanent 3.7km FIA grade 2 and FIM grade 1 track along the Changi coastline, a 1.2km grade 1 karting track, a quarter-mile drag race track, a 20,000-seater main grandstand and 10,000-seat temporary grandstand.

SG Changi are expected to confirm and announce their schedule of local, regional and international competitions by June next year, including the MotoGP world championship.

Last month, MediaCorp reported that AirAsia and Lotus F1 racing team boss Tony Fernandes, whose sponsorship of the AirAsia British Grand Prix for motorbikes at Silverstone makes him a VVIP client of MotoGP's commercial rights holder Dorna Sports, is keen on bringing MotoGP to Singapore.

However, MotoGP rights holder Carmelo Ezpeleta told MediaCorp he will not bring it to Singapore unless the track meets all requirements, although SG Changi director Thia Yoke Kian remains optimistic.

"We're still waiting for the track to be approved, and once that is attained, we'll talk to Dorna," he told MediaCorp yesterday.

There are also plans to include a warehouse that can hold up to 750 cars, commercial, motor industry and leisure sectors featuring a motorsports museum, an exhibition centre, event plaza and an entertainment centre, a hotel, beachfront and water sports facilities.

Also in the pipeline is the setting up of a racing academy.

While details such as the number of students and fees have not been worked out, the hub's primary target is the Asia-Pacific region. Said Murahashi: "Since this circuit is our own, we'll be planning very reasonable fees."

Added SSC chief executive officer Oon Jin Teik: "They're trying to make the entire offering viable for all Singaporeans. That means the product must be consumer-centric, fun, exciting and have the lifestyle elements."

Among the 200 guests at the ceremony who left impressed was former Formula 1 driver Alex Yoong.

"This is great. With a 3.7km circuit, it's great for grade 2 events," said the Malaysian, who drove for Minardi for two seasons.

"It's not a flat piece of land, and there's not much space to work with, so it's difficult to make this into a driver's paradise, but looking at the plans, they've done a very good job with a good mix of high and low speed corners, and it's perfect for what Singapore needs."

SINGAPORE - For the first time, Singapore welcomed 1 million tourists in a single month. The Singapore Tourism Board (STB) marked the occasion of ushering in 1 million tourists in July with a warm welcome at all of Changi's four airport terminals, including the Budget Terminal.

The uptrend began some eight months ago. In June, there were 950,000 visitor arrivals. And with some 6.5 million visitor arrivals as at July, STB is confident that it can reach its target of between 11.5 million and 12.5 million visitors this year.

"The second half of the year, again, is typically of a stronger performance compared to the first half of the year traditionally. So we are definitely optimistic that barring any surprises, we should reach our projections," said Mr Lawrence Leong, STB's assistant chief executive, International Group and Corporate Development Group. Tourism hits a new high here Residental
There are many residential areas around Changi, comprising mostly private property. There is a large area of landed property with bungalows, terraced and semi-detached houses. There are also a few condominiums. Most of these residences are located near Changi Prison, and can be accessed from Upper Changi Road North. There is also public housing in Changi Village, mostly old 3 or 4-storeyed HDB buildings that have not been redeveloped or upgraded.

One school in Changi is The Japanese School, an international school. Singapore Aviation Academy is also located in Changi.

The main businesses in Changi involve the aerospace industry, particularly for commercial airlines. Aircraft maintenance takes place in the SIA Engineering Company, located along Changi Coast Road. Changi Water Reclamation Plant is also nearby. This district is also close to Loyang Industrial Estate.

Answer: b The replica Chapel is representative of the many chapels built by POWs in Singapore and Malaya.
The Museum also serves as an important educational institution and resource centre.
The replica is not just a museum exhibit, religious services are regularly held in it. It is also a quiet place of prayer for visitors, former POWs and internees, and the relatives of those who suffered and died at the hands of the Japanese. Master Plan for Changi Airport The master plan is intended as a basis for the land use development of the land allocated for KHIA and the development of the airport itself.

The plan has three major features
1. First it is formulated to enable the airport to be developed in a sustainable and cost effective manner. This will underpin the airport's efforts to expand its capacity for both passenger and air cargo traffic.
2.Secondly, the master plan will seek to minimize any adverse effect on the environment, which may arise from the development of the airport. This is particularly important because Aqaba affords access to Petra, one of the 7 wonders in the world as well as the Red Sea coral reefs.
3. Thirdly, the plan will also set out the land use strategy to enable the airport to attract and accommodate investments in various aviation related businesses. This will represent a new source of jobs and economic growth for Jordan.
