Jacobs secures contract for first phase of Cross Island Line project in Singapore


Jacobs has been selected as the design consultant for the design and construction of the Tavistock Station and Tunnels as part of the first phase of Cross Island Line project in Singapore.

The approximate value of the contract is $302m (SGD$407m).

The Cross Island Line will be built in three phases.

Once built, it will be Singapore's eighth Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line with longest completely underground network.

The company is responsible for designing and constructing the underground station, bored tunnels, launching shaft for tunnel boring machines and related building services.

Linking important hubs and interchanges and making traveling across the rail network easier, the Cross Island Line will cater to the present and future developments in the eastern, north-eastern, and western corridors.

Jacobs People & Places Solutions senior vice president Keith Lawson said: "This appointment builds on Jacobs' strong track record of delivering transformational projects in Singapore, as well as strengthening our presence in the growing transport infrastructure market across Asia.

"Our technical skills and rail experience will help connect more people, places and communities in this vibrant city and support our goal of creating a more connected, sustainable world."

Construction work of Tavistock station started in May.

Passenger service under first phase of Cross Island Line is set to start in 2030.

Jacobs will work with Sato Kogyo, which was awarded a contract by Land Transport Authority to offer civil, structural, and architectural design services and maintain critical oversight of the construction of the project.
