Hwa Seng Builder has won a contract from the Singapore Land Transport Authority (LTA) to construct the Tampines Expressway (TPE) Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) Changi Viaduct.

The S$95.6m ($69.76m) contract will see Hwa Seng Builder conclude the construction of the viaduct, including the demolition of any unsafe structures.

Works are scheduled to start during the first quarter of next year and estimated to be completed by the first half of 2022.

The TPE-PIE Changi Viaduct will offer a direct connection for motorists commuting from TPE (Changi) to PIE (Westbound) and Upper Changi Road East once operational.

“The project was suspended in July last year after a worker was killed and several others injured when the structure collapsed.”

It will help motorists to bypass the stretch of TPE (Changi) between Loyang Flyover and Upper Changi Flyover and the existing signalised junctions at Loyang Ave and Upper Changi Road North.

Work on the viaduct in Changi was initially scheduled to be completed in 2020, but the project was suspended in July last year after a worker was killed and several others injured when the structure collapsed.

Previous contractor Or Kim Peow Contractors was completing the works to cast the decking for the viaduct when a section collapsed due to the weight of wet concrete. Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

Hwa Seng Builder was also the contractor that recently opened a new road project connecting Punggol Central to the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and TPE (PIE).
