The Land Transport Authority of Singapore (LTA) has awarded a civil contract for the design and construction of the Luoyang station and tunnel under the first phase of the Cross-Island Line (CRL1).

The contract valued at US$557.4 million (S$748 million) was won by a joint venture (JV) between Woh Hup and Dongah Geological Engineering's Singapore branch. Both companies are currently engaged in the construction of other subway stations in Singapore.

The construction of Luoyang Railway Station is expected to start in the fourth quarter of 2021. The subway station will be located along Luoyang Avenue. The work will include retaining and stabilizing structures (ERSS) and the use of specially designed machinery for deep pit excavation. In addition, the contract works will include the construction of a section of Luoyang viaduct directly above CRL1 Luoyang Station. It will be located along Luoyang Avenue, between Tampines Expressway and Luoyang Road.

The CRL subway line will serve the existing and future development of Singapore’s eastern, northeastern and western corridors. It will be constructed in three phases. CRL1 is 29 kilometers long and has 12 stations, from Aviation Park to Bright Hill.

The first phase will mainly provide services to residential and industrial areas in Luoyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, northern Serangoon and Ang Mo Kio, benefiting more than 100,000 families. The construction of CRL1 is expected to be completed in 2030. In April, LTA awarded another CRL1 civil construction contract to South Korea's Daewoo Engineering Construction Company and the local Tonga Geological Engineering Company.Editor/Baohongying
