Chang Kin Boon


Currently the Deputy Group Director of Rail Infrastructure and Expansion Group with concurrent position as the Project Director of RTS Link, which connects Singapore to Johor, and North East Line extension.


Together with my colleagues and partners, some of the challenging projects that were managed and overcome includes complex and large scale projects like Telok Ayer Station and Tunnels in the city centre, Bencoolen Station (the deepest station in Singapore), the highly challenging tunnelling works which undercrossed in-service MRT Lines at close proximity and the construction of tunnels under Singapore River. Several notable awards were achieved, such as:

IES SG50 award – Construction of Tunnels under Singapore River

IES SG50 award – Construction of Tunnels under various live MRT lines

2016 ITA Tunnelling. Winner – Project of the Year - between €50m and €500m


With the appointment as DyGD RI&E (Civil), partnering with the LTA Tunnel Division, I will be able to contribute to the Tunneling and Underground construction fraternity of Singapore.
