The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) recently launced a Request for Proposals for the Rail Corridor in Singapore. The URA is inviting architects and landscape architects to assemble a multi-disciplinary Design Team and provide consultancy services to develop a Concept Master Plan and Concept Proposals for the Rail Corridor Project in Singapore.
The Rail Corridor as it now stands is without most of its tracks, sleepers and railway equipment. It has become a stretch of greenery; a “green corridor”, that stands out as an informal public space in contrast to the dense urban developments in other parts of Singapore. It weaves through diverse landscapes, linking high-density public housing estates with pockets of private housing, business parks, industrial areas, nature reserve, parks and land that have yet to be developed.
The RFP involves two stages with a Pre-qualification round and then a design phase split into three stages. Pre-qualification closes on April 23.
