JRL Contracts - Awards & Tender progress

As of mid-April, all contracts for the first phase of the Jurong Region Line (JRL) were floated for tender. Since then, approximately three of the first few civil contracts have closed and are awaiting award while the remaining three contracts are still in the midst of the tendering stage.

Also recently closed was contract J151 for the procurement of train sets for the line. This brings the line a step closer to actualization. We have compiled a list of the contracts floated for tender and their respective statuses from the start of the studies for the line.
