Aurecon has been appointed as the lead consultant to China Communications Construction Company Ltd and Sinohydro Corporation Ltd Joint Venture, which have been awarded the contract for CR208 Cross Island Line (CRL) Clementi interchange station by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA). The contract totalling approximately S$514 million also includes addition and alteration works at the existing Clementi station on the East-West Line.
The new Clementi interchange station (CR17) – which is part of the CRL Phase 2 – is a Civil Defence interchange station situated along Clementi Avenue 4. Upon completion, it will link the CRL and the East-West Line, enhancing connectivity for residents, businesses, and educational institutions in the vicinity.
Aurecon’s role as the lead consultant involves providing detailed design consultancy services for civil, structures, architecture, and mechanical and electrical works throughout the design and construction phases of the project. Aedas will be supporting Aurecon for the architectural scope.
Singapore’s CRL Phase 2 spans approximately 15 km and features six underground stations, namely Turf City, King Albert Park, Maju, Clementi, West Coast, and Jurong Lake District. This expansion aims to address public transport accessibility for residents in the western regions, including areas like Sunset Way and West Coast.
“The Clementi interchange station will play a key role in enhancing public mobility, providing a connection between the Cross Island Line to the existing East-West Line,” said Marcus Tong, Aurecon technical director for geotechnical, structures and tunnels, who is leading the project.
Other major infrastructure projects in Singapore where Aurecon has been involved include Jurong Region Line Contracts J102 and J109, Cross Island Line Contract CR108 Pasir Ris interchange station, Contract 810C Sengkang-Punggol Light Rapid Transit (SPLRT) Depot Expansion, R8205 Bearing Replacement Works at SPLRT, and the recent ID103 Tuas Engineering Study.
