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.

It is currently constructing the track work for Downtown Line phase 1 & 2, Singapore's fifth mass rapid transit line.
