Singapore LTA Awards Civil Engineering Tunnel Contract Worth $571M


Singapore -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/26/2022 -- Singapore's Land Transport Authority has awarded a civil contract for the construction of CR1, which is the city state's eighth MRT line. When CR1 is finished it will include 12 stations, from Bright Hill to Aviation Park and run for a total of 29km. Part of the reason for the expansion is to support a number of key developments currently happening (and due in the near future) in the eastern, north-eastern, and western corridors. It will open up a connection between many major locations, including Jurong Lake District and Changi region. The new contract will create many valuable civil engineering jobs for Singapore and is worth a total of $571 million. Construction could be challenging for this part of the network - soft marine clay is thick here and significant work will be required to strengthen it for safety. Passenger service on the new CR1 is scheduled to start in 2030.
