WCN Editorial Team 2 May 2016 ASIA TRANSPORT INFRASTRUCTURE

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore has awarded two civil contracts worth about SGD334m ($248.8m) for the construction of Amber and Bedok South stations in Singapore.

 
Woh Hup Limited has secured a SGD146m ($108.7m) contract for the construction of Amber station, while the Bedok South Station and associated tunnels were awarded to China Jingye Engineering Corporation Limited in a contract worth SGD188m ($140m).

Bedok South station will serve as the sixth Civil Defence shelter along the East Coast stretch of Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL).

The 13km-long East Coast stretch of the 43km-long TEL will connect commuters living in the eastern parts of Singapore who are not directly served by the rail network, such as those in Tanjong Rhu, Siglap, Marine Parade, Upper East Coast and Bedok South.

The East Coast stretch will have nine stations, including a station that interchanges with the Downtown Line at Sungei Bedok.

The project will be completed in two stages, with the first seven stations, from Tanjong Rhu to Bayshore, expected to be ready in 2023 and the remaining two due to be completed in 2024.
