Singapore Circle Line tunnelling contracts awarded

Singapore’s Land Transport Authority has announced the award of the first three civil engineering contracts, worth almost £1bn, for its Circle Line 6 metro project.

Work on the three contracts for the new 4km route extension, which cover Keppel Station and tunnels; construction of cut and cover tunnels at Marina Bay; and extension of the Kim Chuan depot, is expected to start this year and be completed by 2022.

The work on the Keppel scheme will be undertaken by a joint venture of Nishimatsu Construction and China State Construction Engineering Corporation (Singapore Branch).

Construction of the Marina Bay tunnels will be undertaken by Singapore-based Koh Brothers Building and Civil Engineering Contractor.

Building work on the depot for the new line has been awarded to another Singapore-based contractor, Woh Hup. The work involves doubling the capacity of the depot with underground space and integrating the rail facility with a bus depot.
