Singapore awards £118m depot contract

26 Sep 11 Singapore’s Land Transport Authority has awarded Jurong Primewide the S$237.1m (£118m) civils contract for a new depot as part of an expansion of the mass rapid transit (MRT) system.

The Tuas depot will be built as part of the Tuas West Extension. The 26ha depot will provide stabling and maintenance facilities for 13 additional North-South-East-West Line trains that will be purchased for the extension. It will also cater for future capacity expansion.

Tuas West Extension will extend the East-West Line and consists of a 7.5km-long twin tracked MRT viaduct and four above-ground stations. The MRT viaduct is also integrated with a road viaduct along Pioneer Road.

Construction of the depot will start at end of this year and is targeted to complete in 2016.
