The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded a contract to build Woodlands South station to construction firm Woh Hup for $144 million.

The Thomson Line station will be completed in 2019 and serve residents in the Woodlands South area, as well as students from the Singapore Sports School, Christ Church and Woodgrove Secondary Schools. Construction will begin later this year.

Woh Hup was previously involved in several Circle Line projects, including the construction of Dhoby Ghaut and Holland Village stations.

Woodlands South is one of 22 on the 30km, fully underground Thomson Line, which will be completed in phases from 2019 to 2021. The line will run from Woodlands to Marina Bay.
