Aurecon has been appointed as the consultant to Sato Kogyo (S) Private Limited which is in charge of design and construction works on the Sengkang-Punggol Light Rail Transit (SPLRT) depot expansion project in Singapore. Aurecon will provide architectural, civil, structural, building services and other design services for the SPLRT depot expansion.
In February 2022, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) awarded Sato Kogyo a SGD157 million contract to construct the new SPLRT depot. As part of the project, the existing 3.5-hectare depot will be expanded to 11.1-hectares to increase its stabling capacity as well as expand its maintenance facilities. The new facility will be able to accommodate 17 new two-car trains.
The new SPLRT depot will consist of two reception tracks to shorten the train launching time and three new traction power substations. Work on project is expected to be completed in 2027.
