Hillview - Flyover Works

The permanent superstructures of the station entrances, vent shafts as well as the Flyover columns are becoming explicit in sight on the site surface. Another round of road diversion along Upper Bukit Timah Road was implemented at the end of 2014 to temporary run the city-bound carriageway alongside the Woodlands-bound road which was also realigned outwards. The end result diverts traffic to one side of the row of flyover columns for the temporary road deck above the station to be removed and reinstatement works to commence.

A smooth progression of beam launching works for the flyover columns is taking place in phases every few weeks, with another segment launched up along the southbound side this morning. The twin segment for the northbound side will also be launched in a few hours time. The northbound station entrance is currently sandwiched in between the 2 roads. Steel segments of the roof have been installed here. Photos in this update were taken on February 25.
