Alstom lands Singapore contract

Posted on March 14, 2012

The Land Transport Authority of Singapore awarded Alstom a contract for the East-West metro line extension — known as the Tuas West extension.

Tuas West extension works include the design, supply and installation of double track on viaduct and aluminum third rail, four elevated stations, plus the track in the Tuas depot, which consists of single track, mainly in ballast.

The construction of track is scheduled for completion in 2016.

Alstom has been present in Singapore since 1964 and is a key player in the local market, having participated in the construction of key railway projects such as the North East and Circle Lines, the world's longest automatic underground metro. It is currently constructing the track work for Downtown Line phase 1 & 2, Singapore's fifth mass rapid transit line.
