SINGAPORE - The six Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) stage two stations, from Springleaf to Caldecott, have each been carefully designed with unique features.
On Friday (May 14), Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung, in a Facebook post, gave a sneak peek of the six stations that are due to open in the third quarter of this year.
A photograph he attached of Mayflower station shows a bird sculpture perched above an exit sign. These are scattered throughout the station, inspired by the bird-watching community in the Kebun Baru area, Mr Ong said.
Springleaf MRT station has an art piece featuring a sprawling tree of memories over its lift shaft, including a reference to the famous Ampang yong tau foo dish. Caldecott station has a unique X architecture feature.
Other MRT stations, especially the newer ones constructed in recent years, also have distinguishing features. Geylang Bahru station on the Downtown Line features leaf-like architecture and has artworks that bring back memories of the construction and industrial background of the estate.
Fort Canning Station on the Downtown Line has a green theme to reflect its natural surroundings.
The other three stations on TEL stage two are Lentor, Bright Hill and Upper Thomson.
