In addition, it will conduct noise measurement at the viaduct sites before and after installing the equipment in order to validate the effectiveness of the noise barrier systems.

Work on the project has already commenced and is expected to be completed by 2020.

The company noted that the latest deal has increased the total values of its outstanding orders to S$252.8m ($185m).
