Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has said that excavation work on the final three stations on its new Circle Line 6 metro project is are target to start in mid-2019.
According to LTA, installation of earth retaining walls and stabilising structures for the station boxes, depot and tunnels has progressed smoothly since work got underway in April.
The new 4km long Circle Line 6 will close the loop on the Circle Line and connect Harbour Front Station to Marina Bay Station. Advance work for the new route started in late 2015.
The LTA commented on the progress of the project as part of an announcement regarding the name of the stations. The naming of the three stations on the new metro line was decided by a public vote and will be known as Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward Road.
