Shanghai Tunnel Engineering will construct a road tunnel, an MRT station box and commuter facilities, including pedestrian bridges, bus stops, sheltered walkways and cycling paths between Sin Ming Avenue and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3. Work is expected to begin by the second quarter of 2019.
The 800m-long dual three-lane road tunnel will be integrated with the future Cross Island Line Teck Ghee MRT station.
The 21.5km NSC is Singapore’s first integrated transport corridor. It features continuous bus lanes and at-grade cycling trunk routes, in line with Singapore’s ‘car-lite’ vision. The NSC is expected to be completed in 2026.
