The Land Transport Authority said on 17 March 2020 that it has awarded the contract for the design and construction of three JRL stations and associated viaducts to a venture between John Holland and McConnell Dowell South East Asia for $265.4 million.

The contract covers the construction of Tengah Plantation, Tengah Park and Bukit Batok West stations and viaducts spanning 2.3km.
