The construction of an enormous passenger terminal beside the existing Changi Airport will begin around 2020, says CAG’s assistant general manager, Mr Marken Ang.
With around 20,000 estimated workers, Changi East partners with multiple technology companies to uphold utmost construction site safety and security, such as e-tracking and virtual geo-fencing.
One of which is Echol with eGuardian Trace, also known as safety and health monitoring solution.
“…Among the new measures being introduced was the opening, last month, of a checkpoint at the worksite to monitor human and vehicle movements in and out of the premises. The facility can currently handle up to 500 vehicles and 8,000 workers per hour. Workers entering the airfield are issued with a transponder daily, which they must return when they leave the area. Virtual fences are pre-programmed into a system. Should a worker cross the fence into the restricted area, an alarm will be triggered to alert the duty managers.” – Karamjit Kaur, The Straits Times
