Amber Station

The Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded two civil contracts with a combined value of S$334m ($2490m) to build the Amber and Bedok South stations on the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL).

It is reported to be completed in two stages, with the first seven stations from Tanjong Rhu to Bayshore scheduled to be ready in 2023, while the remaining stations are expected in 2024.

The 13km line will provide a connection to the city for commuters living in the eastern parts of Singapore who are not directly served by the rail network. This includes those living in Tanjong Rhu, Siglap, Marine Parade, Upper East Coast and Bedok South.

After Bayshore, Marine Parade, Marine Terrace, Siglap, and Tanjong Rhu stations, Bedok South will serve as the sixth Civil Defence shelter along the East Coast stretch of TEL.

"The first seven stations from Tanjong Rhu to Bayshore are scheduled to be ready in 2023, while the remaining stations are expected in 2024."

Construction of Amber station has been won by Woh Hup for a contract sum of S$146m ($108m), while China Jingye Engineering has won the S$188m ($139m) contract for construction of Bedok South station and its associated tunnels.

Previously, Woh Hup was involved in several Circle Line (CCL) projects, such as the construction of Dhoby Ghaut, Bras Basah, Holland Village and Buona Vista stations.

This stretch will also connect commuters to the Thomson stretch of the TEL, which serves the north-south corridor.

It will have nine stations, including an interchange with the Downtown Line at Sungei Bedok.
