CRL1 - What's next?

It has been about a month since the first 12 stations along the first stage of the Cross Island Line have been announced. What comes next as the 10 year journey towards the line's opening commences? We break down some of the things that residents along the route can keep a look out for.

In the coming months, advance work contracts will begin. These typically involve utility works diversions - for water mains, sewers and telecommunication lines - this is to get essential services out of the way of the upcoming construction zones. A number of contracts for these have been called thus far and looking at the range of delivery dates through the government contract tendering portals, most are expected to complete in the 2021 to 2022 range.

A list of advanced work contracts for CRL1 as of 27 February 2019
This is when major construction can be expected, with the civil structure (station building & tunnel physical structures) contracts being tendered from the second half of 2019 to 2020 and awarded from 2020 to 2021. The final completion of the civil works, mechanical & electrical works and architectural works should be close to end-2028 or within 2029 itself. Typically, the last 3 months prior to the completion of all works are used for systems testing. Below is a projected timeline of CRL1 based on the currently available delivery dates.
