Hi tom,

You are indeed our ground man.  By the way, do you feel that the pace of the construction is rather slow? Whats your views on the construction speed?

In building construction, at the initial stage, such as organising , preparing the site, fencing up and getting utilities setup is usually time consuming.

Next getting all necessary heavy building machineries / equipments ( need to be transported by trailers and probably accompanied by traffic police ) in the middle of the night to the site is also time consuming.

When work begins, each cast-insitu pile has to be drilled, casing inserted, prefabricated reinforcement install, concrete and cured. ( curing time may take 28 days )

Next comes load test. By the time when construction begins above ground level, it may take at least 90 days or more.

In civil engineering and bridges, it will take much longer. From the way it's progressing and from the engineering point of view, weather conditions, imported workers, it's not bad.

We traced, those projects at regular intervals, whether it is building construction or civil and structural engineering work, the progress made is quite good. If we look out of the LRT trains daily on the way to work, it may be difficult to notice any difference.

In Singapore, so long is a government project or own partially by the government, the projects usually gets done up faster as compared to private projects.

It all depends on the governement how fast they want the project to move. Look at MBS and USS, merely 3 years of the construction its all done up.

Impose EOT to waterway project so that contractor can stick to the sipulated timeline to complete it.
