Orchard D-walls (III)

The first traffic diversion for T219 was implemented along Orchard Boulevard last month. The realigned road makes way for the construction of the shaft which will oversee the box jacking construction of the linkways between the existing NSL and the new station.

The 2 international schools have moved out by the start of the 3rd quarter, and preparations for the demolishment works have commenced for the future cut and cover tunnel site. The diaphragm wall of the TBM launch shaft seems to have been completed and excavation works should commence by year end.
