Kapuk Naga Land Development
The city of Jakarta is growing out of its current boundaries and wishes to expand to the north, into the Sea of Java. In response to Jakarta’s ambitions, Witteveen+Bos designed a development plan for an area of 12,000 hectares. A significant part of this area will be developed on polders.
Since 1987 Witteveen+Bos has been involved in the development of land reclamation for Pantai Indah Kapuk, Kapuk Naga Indah and Tangerang International City. In these developments a series of ten artificial islands are planned just off the coast of Jakarta. The plan also includes the reclamation of land along the coast.
The reclamation of 800 hectares of fishing ponds at Pantai Indah Kapuk started in 1990, while construction of the first offshore island started in 2013. All reclamations are designed as polder systems, meaning the surface level is at sea level. Therefore, proper water management and sea defences are crucial for the protection of this area against flooding.
Witteveen+Bos carried out a full package of services for the planned reclamations and for the implementation of an effective water management system. Activities included conducting a feasibility study and other impact studies, developing a master plan and technical design, preparing tender documents and offering supervision and technical assistance during the construction phase.
