JURONG Primewide Secures First LTA Project!
JURONG Primewide was awarded the first civil contract for the Tuas West
Extension (TWE) by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) for
$237mil. This is an extension of the East-West Line from Joo
Koon station, consisting of a 7.5km long twin tracked MRT
viaduct and four above-ground stations.
LTA awarded this contract to us based on our alternative design
option, coupled with a competitive pricing package. We bidded
against several local and international firms like GS Engrg,
Hock Lian Seng Infra, KOH Bros, KTL Civil Engrg and Samsung/
Tiong Seng Joint Venture.
The construction is for a 26-hectare MRT depot at Tuas, which
will provide stabling and maintenance facilities for the
additional 13 North-South-East-West Line trains that will be
purchased for the 7.5km Tuas-West Extension.
Construction of the depot will start at end of the year and is
expected to complete in 2016.
SMM Lights Up F1 Singapore!
was commissioned by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB) to design
and construct a lighting system which primarily enhances
Singapore’s nightscape and the appearance of its iconic
buildings around the Marina Bay Street Circuit on broadcast, at
the 2011 FORMULA 1 Singapore Grand Prix held at the Marina Bay
These buildings included the City Hall and the former Supreme
Court, the Benjamin Sheares Bridge, the Merlion, The Esplanade,
Victoria Concert Hall, the Civilian War Memorial and the Pit
Building rooftop. SMM partnered with lighting design consultant,
Light Cibles, for this project.

structures for optimal effect. For instance, to overcome the
ongoing refurbishment works at the City Hall and the former
Supreme Court, two towers of 15-metre each were erected at the
Padang to project lights across the race track onto the two
buildings to achieve the desired lighting effect. Four 10-metre
towers were built from a distance of 40-metres from the
Esplanade to create an impressive lighting effect which enhances
the building’s façade made up of ‘fins’ tilted at different
