£894M tunnel contracts awarded in Singapore

nsr singapore

Singapore’s Land Transport Authority has awarded two contracts totalling S$1.16bn (£894M) to construct two tunnels and commuter facilities for two sections of the North-South Corridor (NSC).

The two contracts include tunnels, pedestrian overhead bridges, bus stops, sheltered walkways and cycling paths between Toa Payoh Rise and Marymount Lane and between Kampong Java Road and Suffolk Walk.

Samsung C&T Corporation has been awarded the first contract to design and construct a 1.37km section of the tunnel with one exit ramp between Toa Payoh Rise and Marymount Lane for £336.8M (S$602.6M).

The construction of a second tunnel between Kampong Java Road and Suffolk Walk has been awarded to Hochtief subsidiary Leighton Contractors and Yongnam Engineering and Construction joint venture (Leighton-Yongnam JV) at a contract sum of £309M (S$553.8M).

Leighton-Yongnam JV will design and construct a 0.64 km section of tunnel with an entry ramp and an exit ramp between Kampong Java Road and Suffolk Walk. The contract also includes the provision of commuter facilities and the widening of Rochor Canal.

The 21.5km NSC is Singapore’s first integrated transport corridor, and will include continuous bus lanes and cycling trunk routes in line with the city’s ‘car-lite’ vision.

Works on these contracts are expected to begin by end of 2018 and be completed in 2026.
