    Additional Information

    Introduction

    One of Raffles’ key contributions to Singapore’s early beginnings was a land-use plan later known as the Raffles Town Plan. However, the Raffles Town Plan guided the city's growth for less than a decade. By the early 1900s, in the absence of an updated town plan and with the lack of control by the British government, the city area had become severely overcrowded with slums sprung up in the older sectors of the city and in the outlying areas. The roads had also become congested, unable to cope with the growth of motor transport. Step into the minds of the planners who have shaped our city. Learn of the nation’s planning challenges and creative solutions to balancing different competing needs; living, working, and playing as well as extensive conservation efforts and urban design strategies to create a more distinctive Singapore. Discover how Singapore transformed; from her colonial city parentage to a vibrant metropolis with world-class facilities and space enough for greenery and gracious living.
