SK Engineering & Construction announced on September 5 that it won an order worth 193 billion won (US$174 million) for subway construction from Singapore's Land Transport Authority.

The second-stage of the metro project will connect a 16.6km line between Bugis and Bukit Panjang. The company will be in charge of the construction of two 940m underground tunnels, a train station, and an open-cut tunnel in the 2.2km section between the Botanic Gardens and Sixth Avenue stations. 

With the latest contract, SK E&C has a total of six construction projects under way in Singapore, including three subway projects in the second and third stages, a construction project for an access road to Sentosa Island in the south of the city state, and two cable underground tunnel projects. A series of deals allow the Korean company to be one of the major players in Singapore's construction market.  

A SK E&C official said, "We obtained an order for the project in the competitive bidding involving six construction companies with a lot of past experience in Singapore. This deal proves our excellent capabilities."
