Korea firm to build 4-in-1 bus and rail depot in Singapore

Singapore / DPA

The contract to build a four-in-one rail and bus depot in Singapore- said to be the world’s first such facility – has been awarded to South Korea-based GS Engineering & Construction Corporation for around US$1.46 billion.
The East Coast Integrated Depot will contain three train depots and one bus depot within a single site of 36ha.
It will be able to stable around 220 trains and 550 buses, said the Land Transport Authority (LTA).
Works for the East Coast Integrated Depot and its associated tunnels will start by the second quarter of this year and are targeted for completion in 2024.
The three train depots in the facility will be stacked one on top of the other, with a bus depot built next to them. The depot to serve the Downtown Line will be built underground, while the TEL depot will be on the road level, and the East- West Line depot will be built on top of it.
