China wins a new station contract in Singapore

JRL stationsSingapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded China Harbour (Singapore) Engineering Company the civil contract for the construction works of two JRL stations on and their associated viaduct on the Jurong Region Line (JRL).

SGD 241 million (USD 181.3 million) is the value of the contract which comprises works to design and construct two JRL stations, JS9 and JS10, in the vicinity of Enterprise Road and Jalan Tukang.

The contract also includes the construction of a 1.5-km viaduct between the stations, over Jurong Central Park and Jalan Boon Lay.

The construction work is expected to start in May 2021 and are expected to be completed by 2029.

This year, LTA awarded another contract for the construction of two JRL stations and a 1.1 km viaduct to the China Civil Engineering Construction Corporation – SCB Building Construction consortium.

By now, the authority has awarded construction contracts for 11 stations including their viaducts totalling 11.4 km. SGD 1.54 billion (USD 1.16 billion) is the total value of the signed contracts. In addition, LTA signed a SGD 739.5 million (USD 556.3 million) contract for the construction of Tengah integrated rail and bus depot, including its ancillary buildings and a transport workers’ dormitory.

The Jurong Region Line will improve connectivity in the western part of Singapore by serving areas that currently do not have direct links to the rail network such as Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Jurong Industrial Estate, Jurong Innovation District, Pandan Reservoir and the future Tengah area.

The stations at Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay and the Jurong area are expected to add more than 60,000 additional households within a 10-minute walk from a train station. As key residential areas such as Tengah new town develop over time, even more households will benefit from the JRL in the future.

The JRL is expected to be completed in 2028 when it will have a length of 24 km served by 24 stations including three interchange stations at Boon Lay, Choa Chu Kang and Jurong East MRT stations.
