GS Engineering & Construction has secured a contract worth about SGD1.99bn ($1.4bn) from the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore for the construction of East Coast Integrated Depot and its reception tunnels.

East Coast Integrated Depot will integrate three train depots and one bus depot in a 36-hectare site.

The depot will have a capacity to accommodate about 220 trains and 550 buses, and will be used by the LTA for stacking the train depots for the East-West Line (EWL), DTL and TEL.

In addition, LTA has awarded contracts worth nearly SGD1.31bn ($962.7m) for the construction of Siglap and Bayshore stations along Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) and Xilin station along Downtown Line 3 Extension (DTL3e).

A John Holland–Zhen Hua (Singapore) Engineering joint venture has won a SGD176m ($129.3m) contract for the construction of the Siglap station.

A Woh Hup (Private)–Shanghai Tunnel Engineering (Singapore) joint venture has received a SGD296m ($217.5m) contract for construction of Bayshore station and its associated tunnels. Both Bayshore and Siglap stations will serve as civil defence shelters along TEL’s East Coast stretch.

Samsung C&T has secured a SGD834m ($612.8m) contract for the construction of Xilin station and its associated tunnels, and reception tunnels to the depot.

Construction work on the projects is scheduled to begin by the second quarter of 2016. Works on Siglap and Bayshore stations are expected to be completed in 2023, with Xilin station and East Coast Integrated Depot expected to be completed in 2024.
