The Thomson – East Coast Line is a 43km rail corridor, with 31 stations running from Woodlands North Station in the north to Sungei Bedok Station.
The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the contract, worth approximately S$176m (A$170m), to the joint venture of John Holland and Zhen Hua (Singapore) Engineering PL, a related CCCC company, to construct the two level underground station.
Executive General Manager for Infrastructure, Jim Salmon, said the new contract is an exciting extension to John Holland’s current work in Singapore.
“We are currently working on two other contracts in the city, including on the T208 contract, which involves the construction of Springleaf Station and tunnels on the Thomson – East Coast Line,” he said.
“We are looking forward to continuing our positive working relationship with the Land Transport Authority.”
Regional General Manager for South East Asia, John Anderson, said John Holland is working to develop an increased presence in South East Asia.
“We see exciting opportunities ahead in Singapore, and are proud to have recently opened a new John Holland office here,” he said.
Construction will commence in the coming months, with project completion scheduled for 2023.
Zhen Hua is majority owned by CHEC, which is owned by China Communications Construction Company (CCCC). CCCC purchased John Holland last year.
