This ambitious billion dollar project was started off in 2008. After the 350m barrage was created, it was up to the natural rainfall to flush away the salt. Any construction in general is difficult in Singapore, because the soil has high proportion of clay. I remember reading somewhere that to simulate this, all you have to do is picture a brick (or 4!) on a tube of toothpaste. They get around this by draining the water content and adding copious amounts of sand - the latter is quite some import bill.
Just about everything seen here is standing on reclaimed land.
