LTA Awards Civil Contract for Hume Station on Downtown Line

News Releases 14 Jan 2021 Downtown Line civil contracts Hume Station

          The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the contract to complete the civil works for Hume station on the Downtown Line to JSM Construction Group Pte Ltd. at a contract value of $34,338,000.

2.       Hume station is located along Upper Bukit Timah Road between Hillview and Beauty World stations. A station box with basic structural provisions had earlier been constructed for this station. The new contract covers the construction of a station entrance, ventilation shaft and fitting-out works for the new station. In addition to serving existing residential developments along Hume Avenue, the station will also provide more convenient access for members of the public to the Rail Corridor (Central) and Former Ford Factory. Hume station is targeted to open in 2025.

3.       JSM Construction Group Pte Ltd. has wide-ranging experience in the construction sector, including a strong track record in MRT station upgrading works. The company is currently carrying out addition and alteration works for Pasir Ris station along East-West Line and had previously worked on providing additional platforms at Choa Chu Kang MRT/LRT station.

4.       In order to fit out the underground station into an operational one, the contractor will be carrying out extensive installation works including architectural, plumbing and sanitary requirements. As the station is along an operational line, majority of these works will only be carried out after train services have stopped running, and when the operator is not carrying out maintenance works.

5.       Beyond civil works, the station will also require the installation and testing of rail systems and electrical and mechanical (E&M) services. The contracts for the E&M services will be awarded later this quarter while the rail systems will be procured from the incumbent contractors who had earlier supplied them for the Downtown Line. Once the installation works are completed, testing will also be carried out before the station can open for passenger service.
