Woodlands Excavation (II)

Excavation works have commenced across the station box. Removal of the top soil reveals a coarse ground conditions at a shallow formation. The rock head of the Bukit Timah Granite is extremely high around the site and extensive rock blasting can be expected throughout the course of the excavation works over the next year.

The previously-excavated section of the crossover tunnel has now been decked over in accommodation of the impending traffic realignment of the Avenue 2/5 junction. The remaining half of the crossover tunnel will then be constructed after the diversion has taken place.

The temporary bus interchange is almost ready and on track to open around January.
