Contracts worth nearly $1.15 billion have been awarded for the upcoming Thomson and Eastern Region Lines.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a $159 million contract to GE to provide the signalling system and platform screen doors for both lines, which will run as one line from Woodlands in the north to the east.

Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited won a $124 million contract to provide the communications systems for both lines. This includes various sub-systems such as the video surveillance, public address and travel information systems.

The LTA has also awarded civil contracts to build Mt Pleasant, Stevens and Maxwell stations on the Thomson Line, which will be ready in phases from 2019 to 2021.
