Construction work for Singapore’s North-South Corridor (NSC) project will commence in 2018. South Korean contractor Samsung C&T will carry out the first stage of work for the project in a deal worth just over US$601 million. The package of works was awarded to the firm by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA). In addition to constructing road traffic lanes for vehicles, Samsung C&T’s contract includes building tunnels between Toa Payoh Rise and Novena Rise. In addition the firm will build cycling facilities, pedestrian bridges and bus stops. In all the NSC will be 21.5km long when it is completed.
