February 2019 - Keppel station progress

Contract 882 is for the construction of Keppel station and tunnels for Circle Line stage 6. The assigned contractor is a joint venture between China State Construction Engineering Co (CSCEC) & Nishimatsu. Both contractors in this joint venture have been involved in MRT construction locally before with projects on the Downtown and Circle Lines.

Circle Line 6 Project Information Centre


Recently Minister for Transport Mr. Khaw Boon Wan shared a post introducing the Circle Line 6 Project Information Centre (PIC) which was officially opened. The Project Information Centre is located along Spottiswoode Road in front of the former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and is open to the public on a walk-in basis, unlike some other centres which require prior bookings and arrangements (for example the Thomson-East Coast Line stage 3 PIC at Orchard station).

CCL6 Route and Station Predictions

It has been a year since Stage 4 and 5 of TEL was announced. Judging by annual schedules of LTA events and the looming deadline of the completion of several MRT lines and extensions by 2025, we expect that CCL6 will be announced in August or September this year. Like what we have done for TSL (later renamed as TEL Stage 1-3) and TEL Stage 4-5, here are our predictions for CCL6.

Stage 6 stations?

This afternoon we came across a page showing some competition entries for Circle Line stations. These were dated to 2013, and we aren't exactly sure of where these stations are meant to be. At a first glance, they seemed potentially to be renders of designs for the initial Circle Line which was completed in 2011. But take a closer look at the station names.
