Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded six contracts totalling S$3.14 billion to design and construct the tunnels and commuter facilities - such as pedestrian overhead bridges and bus stops - for six sections of the North-South Corridor (NSC) project: between East Coast Parkway (ECP) and Victoria Street; between Victoria Street and Kampong Java Road; between Marymount Lane and Pemimpin Place; between Pemimpin Place and Sin Ming Avenue; between Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and Ang Mo Kio Avenue 9; and between Ang Mo Kio Avenue 9 and Sungei Seletar.
