Stevens Diverts

One of our biggest highlights of this quarter's updates lies at the T216 project. An initial diversion has been implemented along the arterial Stevens Road last month, realigning both carriageways to the east. Utility diversions seem to be underway along the west side beneath the former road. With the complete demolishment of 2 Robin Close, piling works have commenced at Entrance B. Acoustic barriers have also been erected around the site area and with the innovativeness from the Korean contractor, the barriers exhibits a unique design replicating flora that were felled to blend in with the surroundings.

Kori have been subcontracted for the supply, fabrication, installation and dismantling of strutting and decking works for this contract. In addition, NFM Technologies will manufacture the 4 slurry Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM) to be utilized in this contract. This would the first time NFM's machines are being used to bore Singapore's metro tunnels. D-walling works are also underway at the Dalvey Launch Shaft.

Photos in this update were taken on December 30.
