Building Tomorrow's Transit: The Crucial Part We Play in Cross Island Line Phase 1's Success

18 December 2023

Singapore: The Cross Island Line (CRL), which is targeted to be fully completed by 2032, will be the longest fully underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line at more than 50 kilometres long. 

Constructed in three phases, the 29-kilometre long Phase 1 of the CRL (CRL1) will comprise twelve stations from Aviation Park to Bright Hill,  and will cater to residential and industrial areas including Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North, and Ang Mo Kio.  Construction for CRL1 is already underway, with a targeted completion date set for 2030.

At the forefront of this monumental endeavor, our concrete plants play a pivotal role in meeting the stringent conditions imposed by the ambitious project, producing high-quality concrete that withstands the test of time. Our bespoke horizontal wet-mix plants are currently employed by a renowned local precast specialist and a well-established Japanese company with a proven history in successfully executing tunnelling projects. These plants are dedicated to producing top-notch concrete under the most rigorous conditions, showcasing our commitment to excellence in infrastructure development.

From the formulation of precise mix designs to the stringent quality control protocols, every step of our concrete production process is meticulously executed to ensure that the final product meets and exceeds the exacting requirements set forth by the project specifications.  

In addition to meeting strict quality standards, our concrete plants operate with a commitment to efficiency and reliability. Cutting-edge batching systems, automated processes, and a proactive maintenance regimen ensure that production remains seamless, even in the face of tight deadlines and complex logistical challenges.

As the Cross Island Line tunneling works progress, our concrete plants stand as beacons of reliability and quality amid challenging conditions. Through precision in mix design, rigorous quality control, and project-specific innovations, we not only meet but exceed the stringent standards set by this ambitious project. In the heart of construction adversity, our commitment to delivering high-quality concrete remains unwavering, ensuring that the tunnels of the Cross Island Line are built to last and withstand the test of time.
