The Singapore Land Transport Authority has awarded a S$362.76 million contract to South Korea-based Samsung C&T Corporation to build the Caldecott metro station on Singapore’s MRT network. The station will provide an interchange facility between the Thomson Line that is still under construction and the Circle Line. Construction work that is expected to start in August 2013 is scheduled to be completed by 2020. Further, a separate S$535.87 million contract was awarded to China-based Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Company for the construction of 7 km twin tunnels from Woodlands to the Mandai depot on the Thomson Line. Construction is due to start in August 2013, with completion planned for 2019. Upon completion, the 30 km Thomson L will be a fully underground, automatic, and driverless line that comprises 23 stations. The line is being built in three phases: Phases I, II, and III are scheduled for opening in 2019, 2020, and 2021, respectively.
