Being part of a project like this challenges me to think on my feet! The best part about working in SG HSR is our energetic and passionate team. For those interested in a career at SG HSR, be prepared to be nimble, and you’re on your way to being part of an exciting project!

Alexander Ng

Deputy Project Manager, Civil

Every day is fast-paced and dynamic! Besides working closely with our counterparts in Malaysia, I also work closely with many of Singapore’s ministries and agencies. It’s definitely a privilege and fantastic opportunity for me to challenge myself professionally as an engineer. This project symbolises the close ties between our two nations. And it’s also a catalyst for the new Jurong Lake District’s transformation into Singapore’s second CBD. As a team, we’re motivated to deliver on these expectations.

I lead the Programme team of SG HSR, which means keeping our timeline on track. On a typical day, I oversee the master programme planning for the project, working closely with our Civil, E&M and Contracts teams and external consultants. The best part about working in SG HSR is knowing that I’m part of the team that will eventually deliver the HSR and create history for Singapore. For those keen to be part of this iconic project –be prepared for an exciting challenge ahead!

Deputy Manager, Human Resource

SG HSR is a very dynamic team. True to its name, it’s gearing up, full speed ahead. Despite that pace, our team glows with all the warm-hearted colleagues who will try to make time for each other, whether for work or a break outside the office. Personally, the primary thing for me is my colleagues, and the scope of work comes second.
