News Releases 07 Feb 2022 Cross Island Line (CRL) civil contracts

      The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the civil contract for the design and construction of Pasir Ris East station, under the first phase of the Cross Island Line (CRL1), to Singapore Engineering & Construction Pte. Ltd. - Sinohydro Corporation Limited (Singapore Branch) Joint Venture. This contract is valued at around $363 million.


2.   Singapore Engineering & Construction is one of Singapore’s most established civil engineering and construction specialists. The company’s previous projects included the construction of Tai Seng Facility Building which serves the Downtown Line and the widening of Keppel Viaduct.


3.   Sinohydro Corporation Limited is a hydropower engineering and construction company which has been involved in a wide range of infrastructure works locally and abroad. The company is currently constructing Napier and Marina South stations for the Thomson-East Coast Line.

4.   Construction works for the CRL1 Pasir Ris East station are expected to start in the second quarter of this year, with passenger service expected to commence in 2030.


Engineering Highlights


5.   CRL1 Pasir Ris East station is located along the busy roads of Pasir Ris Drive 1, in the vicinity of residential blocks and community amenities. To mitigate the impact to residents and motorists, staggered stages of traffic and utilities diversions will have to be implemented to facilitate the construction works. Safety measures will be taken when carrying out Earth Retaining and Stabilising Structure and excavation works, which are expected to be approximately 25 metres deep, to ensure stability of the ground and surrounding structures. LTA and the contractor will closely monitor the works to ensure that they are carried out safely with minimal impact to the nearby stakeholders.


About the CRL


6.   The CRL is Singapore’s eighth MRT line. It will serve existing and future developments in the eastern, north-eastern and western corridors, linking major hubs such as Jurong Lake District, Punggol Digital District and Changi region. The CRL will have almost half of its stations as interchanges with other rail lines, making it easier and more convenient for commuters to travel across the rail network.


7.   CRL1 is 29 kilometres long and comprises 12 stations from Aviation Park to Bright Hill[1]. This will serve residential and industrial areas in Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North and Ang Mo Kio and benefit more than 100,000 households. With CRL1, common recreational spaces such as Changi Beach Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park will be more accessible by public transport. Studies on the details of subsequent CRL phases are ongoing.
