Tampines North MRT Station (CR6) is an underground station along the Cross Island Line (CRL) Phase 1. The station is located underneath Tampines Avenue 11, at the junction with Tampines Avenue 6 and Tampines North Drive 2, which are future roads which will serve the upcoming Tampines North residential town.

At present, the station is at the north edge of Tampines town and in the vicinity of industries near Tampines Industrial Street 62 which will be expunged in the future to make way for residential developments. When fully developed, Tampines North Station will be a transport node for the Tampines North estate and form an integrated Transport Hub (ITH) with the adjacent Tampines North Bus Interchange.

The station is targeted for completion and opening in Year 2030.

Construction Trivia

Tampines North Station will be constructed as part of Contract CR109 – Design and Construction of Tampines North Station and Tunnels.

Tunnels between Tampines North and Defu will be constructed as part of Contract CR110Design and Construction of Bored Tunnel between Tampines North Station and Defu Station, which was awarded to Nishimatsu Construction Co., Ltd at contract value of $446 million in November 2021. The contract includes the construction of a facility building with underground basements to cater to the electrical and mechanical requirements of CRL1.

Engineering Highlights

A large-diameter Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM), measuring about 12.6 metres in diameter, will be used to construct a single 2.9-kilometre long tunnel with two tracks in it. This will be the largest tunnel boring machine ever to be deployed in Singapore and it is expected to increase work productivity and reduce manpower requirements. The tunnel will be constructed at an approximate depth of 35 metres below ground level, and is almost 50 metres underground at its deepest.

Tunnelling will be carried out mostly in Old Alluvium, which is a predominantly soil-like material comprising sandy and silty clay. This abrasive ground condition is expected to cause some wear to the TBM’s cutting equipment. LTA and the contractor will closely monitor the TBM’s progress and ensure that all works are carried out safely and timely with minimal impact to existing structures, including the shophouses in the area. Construction works for the bored tunnel between Tampines North station and Defu station are expected to start in December 2021.
