The Land Transport Authority (LTA) awarded a contract to an Australian joint venture to design and build three stations on the upcoming Jurong Region Line (JRL). John Holland and McConnell Dowell South East Asia will start constructing the 24km medium-load elevated MRT system later this year, with an expected completion date in 2028.
The $265.4 million contract covers the construction of Tengah Plantation, Tengah Park and Bukit Batok West stations and viaducts spanning 2.3km.
The following stations will serve:
- Tengah Plantation MRT Station: Future residential developments in Tengah New Town
- Tengah Park MRT Station: Existing residential developments along Bukit Batok Road, students and teachers of nearby schools like Dulwich College and Millennia Institute
- Bukit Batok West MRT Station: Existing residential and commercial developments within the Bukit Batok West and Yuhua areas, including educational institutions, places of worship and parks
We have asked Ohmyhome’s Senior Real Estate Consultant, Babu Kandasamy with regards to these projects’ impact on the Singapore property market particularly on the West Region, he said, “This would make housing in those areas more sellable. New train stations definitely benefit residents as they provide excellent connectivity between the old and new estates in the West, cutting down traveling time significantly to other parts of Singapore.”
