Come third quarter in 2021 this year, 6 new Thomson-East Coast Line stations that add another connection from the northern part of Singapore to the Circle Line will be open to the public.
Springleaf to Caldecott
The new stations (TEL 2) are currently undergoing testing and will be ready soon, according to transport minister Ong Ye Kung.
The 6 stations include:
- Bright Hill
- Upper Thomson
In case you didn’t know, Minister Ong will also be taking over as Minister of Health soon, hence the farewell cake from SMRT during his visit.
Every station along the Thomson-East Coast Line will come with unique architecture and interior designs such as the X-shaped features at Caldecott station.
Mayflower station has sculptures of feathered friends scattered throughout, inspired by the birdwatching community in the Kebun Baru area.
Passengers at Springleaf will be able to find a ceiling-to-floor “Trees of Memories” art piece in which you can find the iconic Ampang Yong Tau Fu.
The new stations will benefit around 100,000 households, offering convenience to residents in neighbourhoods including Sin Ming, Upper Thomson, Lentor and more.
