China wins station construction contract in Singapore

Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) awarded China Railway Tunnel Group the civil contract for Prince Edward Station and its associated tunnels on Circle Line 6.
The USD 228.8 million contract involves the construction of the three-level underground station at Palmer Road and twin bored tunnels linking Prince Edward station to Cantonment station.
The 4-km CCL6 will have three stations and will close the loop for the Circle Line (CCL) by connecting HarbourFront Station to Marina Bay Station. Works on the CCL6 are expected to commence by the end of 2017 and complete by 2025.
When the three stations of CCL6 will be completed, the CCL system will have a total of 33 stations, including 12 interchange stations with other MRT lines. It will also expand the rail network to areas such as Spottiswoode and the southern edge of our existing CBD.
With CCL6, commuters will have a direct route between areas in the west like Pasir Panjang and Kent Ridge and key employment areas in the Central Business District, as well as upcoming developments in the Marina Bay area. Commuters travelling from areas like Paya Lebar and Mountbatten will also enjoy faster access to the retail and office centres in the HarbourFront area.
