Mott MacDonald appointed on Singapore expressway project

Mott MacDonald has been appointed as design consultant for three of the six design and build contracts on the new Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) in Singapore.

The MCE provides a strategic east- west link between the Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE), the East Coast Parkway (ECP) and the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE), with direct connections to the Marina South and Straits View areas.

The dual five lane expressway has a total length of 5km of which 3.6km will be underground. A total of 13.1 ha of land reclamation will be carried out to build the MCE. The new road will play a strategic role in the long-term growth of Singapore, linking new developments in the Marina bay area to the rest of the island.

Mott MacDonalds country representative for Singapore You Fook-Hin said "Construction could prove to be a challenge as part of the tunnel runs under the seabed 150m from the Marina barrage which needs to be opened at times to allow water to flow out."

Mott MacDonald’s project team will provide engineering services for 3km of roads including over 2km of twin-cell box tunnel, two ventilation buildings and slip roads.
