Contract 882 for the construction of Keppel station has seen progress with the first of 3 station exits becoming visible at street level. The slope upon which the escalators and staircase will sit can also be visible, signaling that progress is leading towards the exits achieving basic structure completion soon. At the eastern end of the station, back filling works are also in progress. We take a closer look at the progress made at the station over August 2023.

Today we check in on the progress made at Contract 883's Cantonment station in the month of August 2023. Works have proceeded to reinstate the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu (KTM, Malayan Railways) platforms that were removed to allow works for the Cantonment station to proceed. The removed platform canopies were conserved & stored off site till works were sufficiently completed for their reinstallation at the original site. Besides this, the station exits are slowly becoming more apparent as well. We'll take a closer look at these in this post.

Structural works at contract 886 appear to be almost done with the site being handed over to the trackworks contractor. Known as a temporary staging area (TSA), this will form the base for trackworks to be carried out. Through the duration of the track installation work, some gantry cranes and other support equipment may be used.
