Surbana Jurong has been appointed by the Singapore Cooperation Enterprise (SCE) as the master planner for the Greater Libreville region in Republic of Gabon. Surbana Jurong will be providing master planning, transport and infrastructure planning, as well as land management systems for the region estimated to be 1,000 sqkm, or around 1.5 times the size of Singapore. This is Surbana Jurong’s first project with the government of Gabon and this is the 2nd time we are integrating the development of the Land Management System with planning, after the SADA Master Planning Project of Northern Ghana.

Gabon is the one of the richest countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, and Libreville as the capital city plays a major economic role in the development of the country. With a growing population and strong economic growth, there is an increasing need for the Republic of Gabon to balance urban planning with economic and social progress. This contract will allow Surbana Jurong to share Singapore’s expertise in urban planning with the government of Gabon.
