– Consecutive NSC contract awarded based on differentiated design and technology
Samsung C&T Corporation has been awarded a S$603 million design and construction contract to build North-South Corridor, a 1.7-kilometer-long underground road and facility building in the Toa Payoh area by Land Transport Authority (LTA). The construction will commence in May 2018 and be completed by November 2026.
Samsung C&T has been selected as the successful bidder by proposing an original design that would minimize the impact on the surrounding traffic flow during construction.
“I am very grateful to continue building upon our long-term relationship with LTA (Land Transport Authority) once again,” said Bruce Lee, the Head of Samsung C&T’s Civil Infrastructure Business Unit. “It is especially meaningful as it marks Samsung C&T’s 50th project in Singapore. Based on Samsung C&T’s core values of quality and safety, we will complete this project successfully, too.”
Samsung C&T was also awarded the first North-South Corridor contract, construction of a 1.25km stretch of the corridor between Novena Rise and Toa Payoh Rise, last November. Samsung C&T has successfully completed various civil projects around the world, including Downtown Line 3’s Expo and Upper Changi stations in Singapore. The company was awarded the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) 483 and 486 projects, with MCE 483 winning the ‘Construction Excellence Award’ at the annual Building and Construction Authority (BCA) ceremony in 2016. Samsung C&T will continue to collaborate with the partners to successfully deliver projects across the region and co-prosper with the local communities.
