CEMEX Rail to provide switches and crossings for Singapore railways

October 9, 2009

CEMEX Rail, part of CEMEX UK the building materials provider, is supplying four switches and crossing layouts to Singapore Land Transport Authority for the Jurong East rail interchanges.

Each switch and crossing is made up of 350 metres of concrete bearer, in unit lengths from 2.6 metres to 7 metres and provide the support to the rails where tracks converge or diverge. The four layouts have been manufactured at the CEMEX Rail products factory in Somercotes, near Derby and as shown, are laid out for inspection before dismantling and transporting to Singapore. The tracks were supplied to Balfour Beatty Rail and Track Systems and will be installed early next year.

Jurong East is a town in the west region of Singapore and in the east section has an above ground mass rapid transit station which serves as an interchange. Jurong East station is one of the 4 stations that was used in the original Singapore version of Monopoly.
