Integrating Land Use & Mobility: Supporting Sustainable Growth

In Singapore, a small and densely built-up city state, an integrated approach to transport and land use planning is essential to creating a highly liveable and sustainable environment.

Singapores visionary, long-term planning enables the development of housing estates and commercial centres outside of the Central Area, closely served by a robust transport network of roads and a rail-based mass rapid transit (MRT) system.
