URA tender seeks consultants to craft framework on underground space use

Published on Dec 23, 2013 7:35 AM

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) plans to develop a set of guidelines on subterranean development here, in a step towards creating an underground master plan.

It has called a tender seeking consultants to "develop a comprehensive and holistic framework to enable more extensive use of underground space in Singapore".

The URA said this will help steer future decisions on land use and safeguard areas for potential underground developments.

It said the recommendations and guidelines will also guide the preparation of an underground master plan to "dovetail" with the current land use master plan.
