An aerial view of Jurong Port with the island Pulau Damar Laut in the background. Pulau Damar Laut was eventually reclaimed to provide more deep-water berths, and it was linked to the port on the mainland.
When statutory board, JTC, was formed in 1968, the Jurong Port came under its care. Jurong Port operated as a general and bulk cargo port and it supported industrialists in the Jurong Industrial Estate.
As the cargo throughput expands, JTC decided to further expand Jurong Port by building multi-purpose berths on nearby Pulau Damar Laut (left) in 1990. The island will be linked to the port on the mainland via a causeway link.
