Contract Awards - T211, T221 & T226

LTA announced on Friday the award of three contracts for Stage 2 and Stage 3. This marks the award of all civil contracts for Stage 2 of the Thomson Line.

Contract T211 is for the design of, and subsequent construction and completion of Sin Ming station and tunnels to both neighbouring stations. Located near Bishan Park and Bishan Park Secondary School, the station will sit in close proximity to existing HDB blocks. This station was awarded to Penta-Ocean Construction Co. Currently, Penta-Ocean is building the Bendemeer station along Downtown Line Stage 3 and also won the contract to construct Woodlands North station along Stage 1. As this contract includes the interior design of the station, there are no renders to show.

Contract T221 is for the construction and completion of Havelock station. Located near the Holiday Inn Atrium hotel, this station will serve the Zion Rd and Havelock Rd area. It is expected to spur redevelopment that coincides with the demolition of the Zion Rd flats. Gammon Construction Limited, which built Chinatown station along Downtown Line 1 and won the contract to construct Mayflower station, will be in charge of this contract.

Contract T226 is for the construction and completion of Marina Bay interchange station. Sitting to the south of the existing Marina Bay Interchange complex which houses the North-South Line and Circle Line, this stacked side platform station will allow commuters to switch between lines easily right in the heart of town. Taisei Corporation, which completed parts of Circle Line stage 4 and Downtown station on Downtown Line 1, has won this contract. Expect long subways at this station when making connections to the existing North-South and Circle Lines.
