Viaduct Works at Integrated Train Testing Centre (ITTC)

Integrated Train Testing Centre (ITTC) - the first of its kind in Southeast Asia is being constructed. Spanning about 50 hectares, our ITTC will be able to carry out 24/7 integrated trains and systems testing and minimise impact to mainline passenger service. ITTC features 3 main test tracks namely High Speed, Performance & Integration and Endurance track with a total track length of 11km. In this project, Building Information Modelling (BIM) is being used as part of the drive toward digital construction technology. Essentially there are three main buildings in ITTC (i.e. Admin Building, Workshop and Operation Control Centre). The first phase of ITTC will be ready next year in time to receive and test new trains for Circle Line 6. The works are currently underway to complete the next phase in 2025, which includes building the viaduct within the reservoir using temporary steel deck and precast technology (i.e. Precast viaduct segment with progressive stressing of cantilever tendons, precast pile cap shells).

World's First 4-in-1 Depot

The four in one depot is a first in the world to integrate three train depots and one bus depot within a single site. This integration has helped save up to 44 hectares of land, or an area of approximately 60 football fields in land-scarce Singapore. Scheduled to complete in 2024, the train depots are capable of stabling around 220 trains and the bus depot is able to maintain and accommodate 760 buses. Witness this mammoth and arduous construction, as LTA and its Contractor manage the challenges of excavating over 4 million cubic metres of soil, constructing structures comprising more than 1 million cubic metres of concrete & 200,000 metric tonnes of steel and installing approximately 75,000 precast elements.

Circle Line Stage 6 Contract C883

The construction of Cantonment Station as part of Circle Line 6 comprises of four entrances, a centralised cooling tower and four underground linkways. The three-level underground civil defence station (with an additional level catering for future developments) aims to serve the residential catchment areas in Spottiswoode Park and Cantonment Link as well as the future developments south of Keppel Road. The station is being constructed on what used to be the railway platforms for the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, which is a gazetted national monument. Extensive protection measures were implemented during the deep excavation works. The railway platforms were removed in 2017 and are currently undergoing restoration works off-site. These platforms will then be reinstated to its original location above Cantonment Station come 2026.

CETRAN (Autonomous Vehicle)

The CETRAN AV Test Centre is used to develop test procedures and technical standards for Autonomous Vehicles and test AVs before they can be deployed for on-road trials. This visit will demonstrate AV technologies and how they are tested to ensure these on-road trials are done in a safe manner and the differences in philosophy between testing of normal cars (driven by human drivers) and autonomous vehicles.
