Surbana Jurong member company Prostruct Consulting has been engaged to develop the infrastructure protection design for Jurong Regional Line, Singapore’s seventh MRT comprising Jurong East, Gek Poh and Tawas stations. 

Users of JRL will access the Nanyang Technological University, Jurong Industrial Estate and Jurong Innovation District, where the Surbana Jurong Campus is being built. 

The Prostruct team is developing the Security Design Plan, including layered security measures, including hostile vehicle crash protection, and Protective Hardening Measures to keep the infrastructure functioning in the event of an incident involving explosions even when attacked by an Improvised Explosive Device. The Protective Hardening Measures would strengthen structural columns, beams and critical assets including walls and slabs.    

This win comes on top of earlier contracts, awarded in 2020, for infrastructure protection design for the Tengah Integrated Depot, Jurong West and Jalan Bahar stations along the JRL.
