Piling at Mount Pleasant (IV)

Piling works continue for the Mount Pleasant station. The launch shaft for T215 has been excavated down to the S4 layer and has almost reached the formation level.

The Mount Pleasant site is unique to see 2 different contracts handling the mixed-ground bored tunnel works on either ends with their dedicated launch shafts and slurry TBMs, the first such dividend in the scope of works for the MRT construction. 2 separate STPs are in the midst of assembly alongside each other north of the site as a result.
