LTA awards contracts worth $961m for two Cross Island Line interchange stations

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has recently awarded contracts totaling $961 million for the design and construction of two interchange stations in the second phase of the Cross Island Line (CRL) in Singapore. These two stations, King Albert Park in Bukit Timah and Clementi near Commonwealth Ave 5, mark the first contracts awarded for MRT stations in CRL Phase 2.

The contract for the design and construction of King Albert Park station, valued at around $447 million, was awarded to China Communications Construction Company (Singapore Branch), a firm with a track record in delivering design and building projects both locally and abroad.

For the design and construction of the CRL’s Clementi station, a $514 million contract was awarded to a joint venture between China Communications Construction Company (Singapore Branch) and Sinohydro Corporation (Singapore Branch).

Construction on the CRL’s King Albert Park and Clementi stations is expected to commence in the first quarter of 2024, with passenger service for CRL Phase 2 scheduled to begin in 2032. These stations are strategically located in busy areas with residential, educational, and commercial properties, so measures to minimize disruptions to residents, students, and motorists are being implemented.

The CRL is Singapore’s eighth MRT line and is set to be fully underground, providing enhanced connectivity to various areas of the city.
