Making of Mayflower

Contract T210 is for the construction of the Mayflower station and was awarded to Hong Kong-based Gammon Construction, who have completed both the North East Line (NEL) and Downtown Line (DTL) Chinatown stations and the Bukit Panjang LRT previously. Mayflower station will see the most exits on any Thomson Line station with 7 exit structures being built. Situated on a slight incline, the station will see construction taking place in close proximity to many HDB blocks around. Already, a number of trees have been chopped down to make way for the station construction and will be re-planted once construction is done. Some walkways between the blocks will be demolished in the process as well.

Secant bored piling which will form the retaining walls for the station is due to begin soon. During this phase of works, hollow piles will be driven into the ground. The soil within the hollow cavity will be dug out and a rebar cage subsequently lowered in and concrete poured. Finally, the hollow pile casing is removed leaving behind a concrete cylinder which will form the bored pile wall. Some level of noise can be expected during this period.
