China Railway Tunnel Group Co (Singapore Branch), a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Railway Group, has bagged a SGD310.8m ($229m) contract to build the Prince Edward Station and two tunnels on the Circle Line in Singapore.
The contract for Circle Line 6 (CCL6) Prince Edward Station and its associated tunnels has been awarded by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) of Singapore.
Under the contract, construction for the three-storey underground station at Palmer Road as well as two tunnels linking the compound to Cantonment Station is scheduled to be commenced end of 217. The project is slated to be completed by 2025.
The 4km-long CCL6 stretch, which will include three stations such as Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward, will close the loop for the Circle Line by connecting HarbourFront station to Marina Bay station.
Upon completion, the CCL6 will bring the total number of stations on the Circle Line to 33, and connect commuters between the Central Business District and western areas such as Pasir Panjang and Kent Ridge.
In a statement, LTA said: “Commuters travelling from areas like Paya Lebar and Mountbatten will also enjoy faster access to the retail and office centres in the HarbourFront area.”
