Singapore – The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the tender to design and build the Jurong East Integrated Transport Hub (JE ITH) to China Communications Construction Company Limited (Singapore Branch) at a contract value of S$477.4 million.

The ITH comprises community and civic institutions, an office tower and a bus interchange. With its opening, commuters in the area can look forward to direct connectivity and more convenient transfers between the North-South and East-West Lines and the future Jurong Region Line at the Jurong East station. The construction of the JE ITH is expected to start in the second quarter of this year and complete around 2027.

Like all our other ITHs, inclusive facilities have been incorporated into JE ITH, including barrier-free alighting areas and toilets, priority queue zones with seats, and a nursing room. This is part of the Government’s efforts to create a more caring and inclusive public transport system.

The ITH will feature a 27-storey tower block connected by a sky bridge to an eight-storey podium block. The development will have offices, public facilities as well as retail spaces.
