Safti:  Mock-up City 3 July, 2019

The Singapore Ministry of Defence has announced that a new urban training complex will be built for the Singapore Armed Forces by 2023. Safti City will feature mock-ups of the city’s streetscapes and commercial-residential areas for soldiers to train under real-life scenarios. These include an integrated transport hub with a bus interchange, a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station with multiple surface exits, high-rise interconnected buildings, dense building clusters, multiple road networks and public amenities such as shopping centres. The first phase of Safti City will consist of more than 70 buildings, including multi-storey blocks, simulated underground facilities and urban training structures. Phase 1 of the SAFTI City programme will cost approximately USD295 million.
