New Addition to North-South Line: Canberra Station

New Addition to North-South Line: Canberra Station

There's to be a new station on the North-South Line. 

The Land Transport Authority, LTA, says works on the elevated MRT station will start in mid-2015 and are expected to be completed in 2019. 

The station will be located between Sembawang and Yishun stations along Canberra Link. 

It'll serve commuters living in nearby estates such as Sembawang Springs, as well as a mix of upcoming public and private residential developments in the neighbourhood. 

This will be the second MRT station in Singapore to be built on an existing rail line. 

LTA says Canberra station is designed with five entrances linking to the new housing estates across Canberra Link. 

An elevated link bridge will also be built across Canberra Link, allowing commuters to bypass the station's concourse level to directly access the city-bound train platform. 

The new station will also have covered linkways to bus stops, pick-up and drop-off points as well as bicycle parks.
