Cross Island Line

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded to Nishimatsu Construction Co Ltd - Okumura Corporation Singapore Branch Joint Venture the EUR166.93 million (SGD242 million) civil contract for the design and construction of tunnels between the West Coast station (CR18) and Jurong Lake District station (CR19) (working names) for Cross Island Line (CRL) Phase 2

This contract encompasses the construction of twin bored tunnels, each extending 2.4 km beneath the Sungei Pandan canal and key infrastructure such as the West Coast Highway and Ayer Rajah Expressway. These tunnels are projected to reach depths of up to 40 m, surpassing the typical 30-m depth for other stations. The ground conditions in this area predominantly consist of weathered soil and hard sedimentary rock.   Real-time monitoring and safety measures will be implemented during the tunnelling works.  LTA and the contractors  will implement necessary mitigation measures to ensure ground stability and safe construction and minimise impact on nearby stakeholders and infrastructure.

Construction works are expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2024 and passenger service for CRL Phase 2 is targeted to commence in 2032. Visit https://www.gebiz.gov.sg/ and https://www.lta.gov.sg/.  Bid n. LTA000ETT23000080, Ref.n.CR210. 25/24.
