Kaohsiung Metropolitan Mass Rapid Transit (KMMRT)
Working with the Kaohsiung Rapid Transit Corporation, Gamuda constructed 3.86km of the 43km line, which involved the construction of two parallel underground tunnels and two underground stations – the two-storey Fengshan Junior High School and four-level Dadung. Our engineering expertise was deployed in complicated situations where ground conditions were soft and wet, and at times aggravated by earthquakes.
After completion, our stringent approach to environmental protection, quality control and project management earned us the Air Quality Protection Award, and National Environmental Protection Outstanding Award from the Government of Taiwan.
Our well-established track record in the successful delivery of rail and metro systems regionally has led us to secure the RM1.77 billion design and construction contract of the West Coast Station and Tunnels for MRT Cross Island Line (Phase 2).
Awarded by the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA), this project marks Gamuda's first independent venture in Singapore without joint venture partners, solidifying the Group’s position as a key player in the city-state's transportation infrastructure development.
The West Coast Station and Tunnels package contract is Gamuda’s second railway and third infrastructure projects in Singapore, all awarded by the Land Transport Authority of Singapore.
The scope of work includes:
- One underground station
- Twin tunnels, at approximately 1.9 km
- Construction works are expected to start in the first quarter of 2024, with passenger service for CRL Phase 2 targeted to commence in 2032
The alignment for CRL2 will improve connectivity between the eastern, western and north-eastern parts of Singapore.
Upon completion by 2032, CRL2 will benefit 40,000 households living on Sunset Way and along West Coast Road, which are currently not served by any MRT line.
