LTA awards $573m MRT line repair deals

The deals will focus on renewing the power supply on the North-South and East-West Lines.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded contracts worth $573m to renew the power supply and track circuit systems on the North-South and East-West Lines (NSEWL).

According to a press release, two of the contracts were awarded to Meiden Singapore Pte Ltd.

A third contract valued at $73m was also awarded to a consortium comprising Siemens Pte Ltd and ENGIE Services Singapore Pte Ltd to replace the NSEWL track circuit system.

The NSEWL’s new power supply system will be equipped with features that significantly reduce the number of power-related faults. The new system will allow for real-time monitoring and better fault prediction, detection and identification.

Moreover, LTA will also be increasing the capacity of the traction substations and intake power substations at Yasin, Bishan, and Stamford.

The design and on-site works for these systems will commence in 2018 and are targeted for completion by the early 2020s.
