Commuters will have a new underpass to get to the redeveloped Capitol Singapore from City Hall MRT station by early next year.

The underground link will be funded and constructed by Capitol Investment Holdings, the developer of the $1.1 billion project on North Bridge Road.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will create a new entrance at City Hall station that will connect it to Basement 2 of Capitol Singapore, an integrated development with residences, a hotel, retail mall and a theatre.

In a statement yesterday, the LTA said the link will "improve pedestrian access and comfort". It called for tenders to construct the new entrance at City Hall.
