Koh Brothers Building & Civil Engineering Contractor (KBCE), a subsidiary of Koh Brothers Eco Engineering Limited, has won a SGD225.4m ($166.5m) contract for the construction of the Circle Line 6 (CCL6), the first medium-capacity rail line in Singapore.
The four-kilometre CCL6, which includes three stations, will fill the gap for the Circle Line by linking the Harbour-front and Marina Bay stations.
The contract has been awarded by the Land Transport Authority, an agency responsible for planning, designing, building and maintaining Singapore's land transport infrastructure and systems.
Under the contract, KBCE will be responsible for executing civil, structural, architectural, electrical and mechanical and system works for the construction of cut-and-cover tunnels and other structures from the east of the planned Prince Edward Station to the existing Marina Bay Station.
Koh Brothers Eco CEO Paul Shin said: “This is a significant win for Koh Brothers Eco, and a testament of the authorities’ confidence in our capabilities amidst the project’s challenges, including carrying out works in the densely populated Marina Bay area.
“CCL6 will also interface with the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System and other PUB sewerage works, which we are confident of navigating well given our familiarity and rich experience in civil engineering and drainage works.
“This project will add to our robust order book, which has been lifted to S$696.9 million. We look forward to deliver yet another landmark project, with an emphasis on safety and productivity, as we continue to participate in Singapore’s development and growth.”
Construction is scheduled to start by the end of 2017 while the project is likely to be finished by 2025.
