Newton - Preparations for Reinstatement

Newton progresses onward to become the first site to see a complete reinstatement. The steel truss frame of the entrance has been completely assembled and works have started on covering the roof. Closer to the circus, the cooling unit, as with many of the other DTL2 stations over the last 2 months, has been delivered and fitted into the cooling tower.

The permanent bus stop at the station has taken shape as well, with the bus bay being cast at the moment. The steel structure of the bus shelter and safety bollards are completed and the bus stop is scheduled to open around CNY next year.

Reinstatement at City Towers
Down the road, the bus stop at the escape shaft site has been reinstated. Casting works of the bus bay had just completed and the bus stop should reopen back to its original location by New Year's Day.
