Design-Build Contract for Singapore’s Ang Mo Kio Metro Station Extension Goes to VINCI Construction

In a joint-venture with Gammon Construction and Engineering, Bachy Soletanche Singapore – a subsidiary of VINCI Construction – has been awarded the design-build contract for the extension of Ang Mo Kio metro station.

This will connect the new Cross Island Line (CRL), the eighth line in Singapore’s mass rapid transit system (MRT), to the existing North–South Line (NSL).

Awarded by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority, the contract is valued at 400m euros (644m USD) and covers the construction of one underground station and associated tunnels, two underground pedestrian passages, and additions and alterations to the existing station.

This project is part of the Cross Island Line Phase 1 (CRL1). This phase will be 29km long and have 12 stations, improving connections between the various rail lines and access to industrial areas, leisure parks and new business hubs.

Work is expected to begin in the fourth quarter of 2021 and the station is due to open in 2030.

Bachy Soletanche Singapore will also team up with Soletanche Bachy International and Bessac, a subsidiary of Soletanche Bachy, which specialises in tunnels and microtunnels. To reduce vibration and control the excavation, the consortium will use equipment including the Hydrofraise, with grippers that limits vibration during hard soil excavation.
