Singapore Circle Line

Singapore CCL Stage 6 will be 4km long and will add 3 stations, Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward, to the existing line of 30 stations across 35.5km. Once completed around 2025, it will close the loop of CCL by connecting HarbourFront Station to Marina Bay Station. By then, commuters will enjoy overall connectivity between areas in the West and key employment areas in the CBD (business district), as well as upcoming developments in the Marina Bay area.

Alstom’s Signalling Systems

So far, Alstom has been supplying signalling systems for three metro lines in Singapore, in total representing over 100km. They are North East Line (20km), the first full underground driverless metro line in Singapore, the entire Circle Line (39.5km) and Thomson East Coast Line (43km), which will start revenue service in five stages from 2019 until 2024.

Ling Fang, Managing Director of China & East Asia, Alstom, said:

“Alstom is pleased to win this contract to continue supporting our customer, LTA, to develop the Circle Line. By closing the loop of the line with a service-proven signalling system, commuters will have an easier and faster travel experience from the western to the eastern part of Singapore. Alstom will work closely with LTA to execute this project in order to deliver the highest level of excellence”
