An interesting point to note is that Land Reclamation actually requires several decades for the land to fully settle. In Singapore for example significant construction does not begin on reclaimed land for at least 20 years. In the periods prior to settlement, there is a lot of ground shifting, which can lead to cracks in typical poured concrete road systems. The use of interlocking pavers allows for the individual units to expand and contract in tune to physical and thermal fluctuations. In addition, it also makes maintenance a lot easier.
