 The construction of a 5km tunnel for Phase 2 of the Cross Island MRT line (CRL2) will begin next year, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (Dec 5)
A portion of the tunnel, between the planned Turf City and Bright Hill stations, will pass under the Central Catchment Nature Reserve at a depth of about 70m

This is deeper than the usual depth of 20m to 30m

"LTA had earlier carried out a comprehensive Environmental Impact Assessment and will implement all the necessary mitigation measures outlined in the Environmental Monitoring and Management Plan," the agency said.
The contract for the project, valued at around S$758 million, covers the design and construction of a bored tunnel between Fairways Drive and Sin Ming Walk
