Contract awards - T202 & T217

Yesterday the Land Transport Authority announced the final civil contract awards for the Thomson Line (TSL) due this year - contracts T202 and T217. Contract T202 is for the construction of Woodlands North station with over-run tracks and bored tunnels to Woodlands interchange. There will be a scissors crossover before the station as well. This contract was awarded to Penta-Ocean Construction Ltd who is currently building Bendemeer station on Downtown Line 3 (DTL3).

The interior of Woodlands North is spacious, with lots of escalators to cater for crowds accessing the JB RTS system.

Contract T217 is for the in-house designed Napier station at the junction of Napier and Cluny Roads. This contract involves construction of the stacked side station with two entrances and stacked bored tunnels to Orchard Boulevard station. Sinohydro Co has received the award and this will be the first time they are involved in an MRT project here in Singapore. Their previous track record lies in Guangzhou and Tianjin in China.
