Singapore awards civils work for underground line
Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded civils contracts with a combined value of S$1.75bn (£663m) for construction of the Circle Line 6 (CCL6).
Largest of the three contracts is the S$1.21bn extension of Kim Chuan Depot, which will be carried out by established local contractor Woh Hup. The expansion will cater to future needs and this includes almost doubling the depot’s housing capacity from 70 to 133 trains. The integrated depot will also house 550 buses, which will allow better land optimisation.
A joint venture of China State Construction Engineering Corporation and Nishimatsu Construction has won a S$313.8m contract for construction of a station and tunnels. The two-level underground station will be located south of Keppel Road.
