The Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) has awarded first three contracts worth SGD1.75bn ($1.3bn) for Circle Line 6 (CCL6) extension project.
The first contract valued at SGD313.8m ($233.1m) has been awarded to a joint venture of China State Construction Engineering Corporation Limited (Singapore branch) and Nishimatsu Construction. It will include the construction of new Keppel MRT station and its associated tunnels.
Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering Contractor won the second contract worth SGD225.35m ($167.42m) to construct the cut-and-cover tunnels connecting the future CCL6 Prince Edward Station to the existing CCL Marina Bay Station.
The third contract valued at SGD1.21bn ($899m) has been bagged by Woh Hup (Private) Limited to extend Kim Chuan Depot. The extension aimed at meeting future needs will almost double the size of the integrated bus and train depot.
The four kilometres, three-station CCL6 is a new rail segment, which will connect existing terminal stops HarbourFront and Marina Bay.
Once the CCL6 stations of Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward will become operational in 2025, the CCL will have a total of 33 stations, including 12 interchange stations with other MRT lines.
