SINGAPORE: The government will release the national granite stockpile from Wednesday to main contractors who have on-going projects that require granite for concreting works.

This comes after a temporary disruption in the supply of granite from Indonesia.

The Building and Construction Authority said in a statement on Tuesday that it has briefed various industry groups about the situation.

The release of the national stockpile will tide the industry over as supply from other regional sources is ramped up.

The BCA also urged the industry to continue to diligently look for alternative sources and diversify.
