Singapore – The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the civil contract for the design and construction of Pasir Ris East station, under the first phase of the Cross Island Line (CRL1), to Singapore Engineering & Construction Pte. Ltd. - Sinohydro Corporation Limited (Singapore Branch) Joint Venture. This contract is valued at around $363 million.

Singapore Engineering & Construction is one of Singapore’s most established civil engineering and construction specialists. The company’s previous projects included the construction of Tai Seng Facility Building which serves the Downtown Line and the widening of Keppel Viaduct.

Sinohydro Corporation Limited is a hydropower engineering and construction company which has been involved in a wide range of infrastructure works locally and abroad. The company is currently constructing Napier and Marina South stations for the Thomson-East Coast Line.

Construction works for the CRL1 Pasir Ris East station are expected to start in the second quarter of this year, with passenger service expected to commence in 2030.

CRL1 Pasir Ris East station is located along the busy roads of Pasir Ris Drive 1, in the vicinity of residential blocks and community amenities. To mitigate the impact to residents and motorists, staggered stages of traffic and utilities diversions will have to be implemented to facilitate the construction works. Safety measures will be taken when carrying out Earth Retaining and Stabilising Structure and excavation works, which are expected to be approximately 25 metres deep, to ensure stability of the ground and surrounding structures. LTA and the contractor will closely monitor the works to ensure that they are carried out safely with minimal impact to the nearby stakeholders.
