Singapore Jurong Regional Line – J108
The Jurong Region Line (JRL) is Singapore’s seventh metro line, serving both existing and future development in western Singapore.
When finished, the JRL will significantly improve connectivity of the region and support the Jurong area to become Singapore’s second largest commercial precinct.
The 24-kilometre-long line will add 24 stations to the existing Singapore rail network to serve residents of Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay, Jurong and future developments in the Tengah area.
John Holland, in joint-venture with McConnell Dowell, is designing and constructing three new elevated railway stations at Tengah Plantation, Tengah Park and Bukit Batok West along the new JRL, as part of contract J108 on behalf of the Land Transport Authority.
When finished, the 150 metre-long station platforms will be linked by 2.3 kilometres of elevated twin track viaducts.
The viaducts are of post tensioned segmental precast design and will be erected using a combination of launching girders and lifting frames. The project includes a stretch of viaduct erected in close proximity to multistorey residential towers and a long span crossing of Bukit Batok Road.
The projected is scheduled to be completed in 2026.
