What stage are we at a year on? Discover the latest worksite progress, including a number of process optimisations and innovations.…
A little over a year ago, the internal consortium celebrated winning the design-and-build contract to extend the Singapore metro’s Ang Mo Kio station. This project forms part of the extension of the Cross Island Line, the eighth line on the metro network.
The project includes delivery of the station, located in the heart of the very dense Ang Mo Kio district, as well as its six entrances, its two underpasses created using the “pipe jacking” (microtunneling) technique, its cut-and-cover tunnel and its two tunnels created using a 7.2 diameter tunnel boring machine (TBM). The contract also includes upgrade and modification of the existing aboveground station, all by the end of 2029.
The internal consortium is positioned as a general contractor on this large-scale project.
