The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded four contracts amounting to $1.04 billion for three stations and a depot along the upcoming Thomson Line.

The LTA awarded three contracts for the construction of the Lentor, Mayflower and Woodlands stations, and another for the Mandai Depot which will serve trains on the new line.

Construction work on the stations are expected to start by March next year. The Woodlands interchange station and Mandai Depot are scheduled for completion in 2019 while Lentor and Mayflower stations will be built by 2020, said the LTA in a press statement on Friday.

The 30km-long fully underground Thomson Line will improve connectivity between neighbourhoods in the north, the Central Business District and Marina Bay areas. Its six interchange stations will link the line to all existing MRT lines.
