Pandrol has been awarded a contract from Taiwan based CTCI for the supply of VIPA DRS and Vanguard for the Thomson line project, Singapore.
The sixth new Mass Rapid Transit Line to be built in Singapore is the Thomson Line, which runs for 30 km from the northern Woodlands area to the Gardens by the Bay attraction. Serving 22 stations, the line will open in stages between 2019 and 2021. Civil engineering work is now well underway and in 2014 a trackwork contract was awarded to CTCI. Pandrol are supplying the rail fastenings and third rail electrification. The Vanguard fastening assembly will be used on those sections of track where an enhanced level of noise and vibration isolation is required. This follows the successful trial on Singapore’s Circle Line in 2009.
