Construction Trivia

Tavistock Station will be constructed as part of Contract CR115 ‚Äď Design and Construction of Tavistock Station and Tunnels, which was awarded Sato Kogyo (S) Pte. Ltd at a contract value of $407 million in January 2022.

Engineering Highlights

Tavistock station is located along the busy roads of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and surrounded by residential and commercial properties. To overcome space constraints, the intermediate launch shaft for the deployment of the tunnel boring machines will be constructed a distance away from the construction site. Tunnelling works will proceed west towards CRL Ang Mo Kio station as well as east towards the next station at Serangoon North, passing through Tavistock station.

The ground at Tavistock station is made up of Old Alluvium, a predominantly soil-like material comprising sandy and silty clay. This abrasive ground condition is expected to cause some wear to the cutting equipment on the tunnel boring machines. LTA and the contractor will pay close attention to the tunnelling equipment and overall works to ensure they are carried out in a safe and timely manner with minimal impact to existing structures.
