Singapore, Singapore - sg/30

Cross Island Line

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded to Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Co (Singapore) - Obayashi Corporation Joint Venture the EUR 365.52 million (SGD530 million) civil contract for the design and construction of CR14 Turf City station (working name) and tunnels under the Cross Island Line Phase 2 (CRL2). 

CR14 station is an underground station located along Turf Club Road, near the former Grandstand. The construction works are expected to be challenging due to the varying soil conditions in the area, in particular the harder ground conditions of the Bukit Timah granite formation which requires the use of specialised techniques to carry out excavation works safely. Before commencing excavation and construction works for the station structure, earth retaining and stabilising structures will be installed to ensure safety and ground stability.  LTA and the contractors will monitor works closely and implement necessary mitigation measures to ensure safe construction with minimal impact to nearby stakeholders and infrastructure. 

Construction works for the CR14 station are expected to start in the third quarter of 2024, and passenger service for CRL Phase 2 is targeted to commence in 2032.
