Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a civil contract, worth approximately $363m, for the design and construction of Pasir Ris East Station.
The contract is part of the Cross Island Line Phase 1 (CRL1) and was awarded to a joint venture (JV) between Singapore Engineering & Construction and Sinohydro (Singapore Branch).
The station is located along the roads of Pasir Ris Drive 1.
Construction on the Pasir Ris East station is anticipated to commence in the second quarter of this year and is expected to be completed in 2030.
Work on the project will be closely monitored by both the contractor and the statutory board to ensure that they are executed safely with minimal impact to the stakeholders.
LTA stated that safety measures will be taken while executing the earth retaining and stabilising structure and excavation works.
Singapore’s eighth MRT line, CRL will serve the existing and future developments in the western, eastern, and north-eastern corridors connecting major hubs including Punggol Digital District, Jurong Lake District, and Changi region.
The 29km-long CRL1 includes 12 stations from Aviation Park to Bright Hill and will serve the residential and industrial areas including Defu, Pasir Ris, Hougang, Tampines, Loyang, Serangoon North, and Ang Mo Kio.
It is expected to benefit over 100,000 households.
Previously, Singapore Engineering & Construction worked on the construction of Tai Seng Facility Building that serves the Downtown Line as well as the widening of Keppel Viaduct.
At present, Sinohydro Corporation is constructing Napier and Marina South stations for the Thomson-East Coast Line.
