Daewoo Engineering and Construction on Tuesday said it had won a $352 million contract to build part of a subway line in the city-state of Singapore.

The company said the contract with Singapore’s Land Transport Authority involving the construction of 3.2 kilometers of the Thomson Line subway, which includes one station and a 2.93 km tunnel.

Construction is expected to begin in two months, the company said.

The overall length of the new subway line, which stretches north to south, is about 30 km, with Daewoo E&C charged with building the section that passes through Stevens Station.

The builder said its section of the subway line runs under the central part of Singapore, making it particularly difficult.

“Daewoo E&C won the order because it proposed an advanced method of construction that is cheaper and will cause minimum inconvenience to the people there,” the company said in a press release.
