Passenger Usage Patterns
Serangoon North Station will be constructed as part of Contract CR113 – Design and Construction of Serangoon North Station and Tunnels, which was awarded to Hock Lian Seng Infrastructure Pte. Ltd. at a contract value of $454 million in January 2022.
Serangoon North station is located under the busy dual lanes of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and the Yio Chu Kang Road vehicular bridge. The station is wider than usual as there will be three railway tracks instead of two, with the additional track being used to facilitate the withdrawal or parking of trains. Traffic diversions will be implemented at various stages of the construction to provide the required working space for the station construction works.
The underpass connection will be constructed by mining beneath the Yio Chu Kang Road vehicular bridge, instead of the typical cut-and-cover method. This mining method will allow the construction of the underpass connection to be carried out without affecting the Yio Chu Kang Road vehicular bridge, hence minimising the inconvenience to motorists. LTA and the contractor will closely monitor the works to ensure that they are carried out safely with minimal impact to nearby stakeholders and existing structures.
