Commencing the tunnels in between stations

Contract T206 is a tunnel-only contract with no station structures catered for. The contract boundaries stretch from the southern end of the Woodlands (Central) station to the cut & cover section within the Singapore Air Force camp at Sembawang and to Mandai Depot. Woodlands South station which will be built under a separate contract lies within the contract boundaries as well.

To date, machinery has been brought in to the two launch shafts near Innova Secondary School though work in earnest has yet to begin.
