New Research & Training Centre for Engineers To Be Tunnelling Specialists

New Research & Training Centre for Engineers To Be Tunnelling Specialists

We recently had the final tunnel breakthrough for the sixth stage of the Circle Line (CCL6) at Cantonment MRT station, which involved tunnelling just six metres beneath the historic Tanjong Pagar Railway Station – equipped with 600 sensors monitoring its structural integrity.

Contrary to that, a stretch of the upcoming Cross Island Line (CRL) will involve tunnelling at 70 metres beneath the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR), which is roughly the height of a 24-storey housing block, but underground instead!

With the increasing growth in tunnelling projects especially for land transport, there is a demand for more engineers to be specialists of the underground and its infrastructure.

Why Platform Screen Doors Are Important for a Train Network

Why Platform Screen Doors Are Important for a Train Network

A woman was pushed into an oncoming subway train at the Times Square station in New York City on Saturday (Jan 15).

The 40-year-old victim was waiting for the southbound R train when she was shoved by a man who fled the scene but admitted himself to the police later on.

The Times Square station is not fitted with safety barriers like platform screen doors, which safeguards commuters from accidents.

Find out why having platform screen doors installed should be one of the top priorities for any train network in the world.
