DTL2 Civil Team 2 Update

Downtown Line Stage 2 (DTL2) is split into two civil construction teams - teams that supervise the construction and completion of the line. Civil Construction Team 1 handles contracts 911 to 917, comprising Gali Batu Depot and Bukit Panjang, Cashew, Hillview, DT4, Beauty World, King Albert Park and Sixth Avenue stations. Civil Construction Team 2 handles the remaining civil construction contracts 918 to 921, comprising of Tan Kah Kee, Botanic Gardens, Stevens, Newton, Little India and Rochor stations. In this update, we track the progress of stations under Civil Team 2.

Tan Kah Kee
Station still in casting, currently doing the concourse level. The roof slab will be next and backfilling will only commence after Q3. Cut and cover tunnel is being backfilled (towards the north side). Launch Shaft to SAV is also being backfilled.

Botanic Gardens 
Backfilling has commenced since the start of the month. A Kobelco crawler has been taken off the site while 2 long-arm excavators facilitate the backfilling. Rebars are seen casted around the south side.

The second and final gantry crane has been dismantled over the weekend. The station should commence backfilling after they have completed casting the platform level.

Scaffolding of the ventilation shaft have appeared since the start of the month. The shaft has since been concreted and is located behind the existing vent shafts for the NSL. The station is almost completely backfilled with rebars caged along where the future realigned road will run. We expect the gantry crane to be taken down only mid 2014, and the final road diversion taking place in Q4.

Little India & C&C
Works on the canal are still progressing, west exit is taking more shape. The cripple siding tunnel is undergoing extensive backfilling at this moment.

  1. I was not aware that projects like that could involve more then one civil construction company. It would make sense because a large project will probably need companies with different specializations. Plus having multiple companies involved could help keep everyone on track and honest. If they are keeping an eye out for each other they can hopefully be progressing forward.
