Know The Line And Design Of  Canberra MRT

The North South Line’s (NSL) Canberra MRT Station (NS12) opens on November 2nd, 2019. At the intersection of Canberra Way and Canberra Link, it placed. Due to a historic British Naval Base along the northern shore, surrounding areas have Western names. The other MRT station built on an existing train line (infill station) is Dover, open in 2001. Four ground-level exits and a fifth platform-level exit connect the city-bound train platform to an overhead bridge that crosses Canberra MRT Link.

Meta Description

Sembawang MRT Station (NS12) is an elevated MRT station on the North South line in Sembawang, located at the intersection of Canberra Link.

North South Line 

A side-by-side platform structure station has two elevated North South Line platforms. Commuters are kept cool, and low-speed fans and half-height Platform screen doors erected at the platform edge. Canberra MRT station was built at least twenty years after its North South Line neighbours and has a significantly more modern design, with a roof hung over the tracks and glass façades letting natural light into the inside. Expected train arrival times and messages display on passenger information systems, which are plasma display panels positioned at each platform. The visually impaired can use tactile flooring to help them get from the platform to the exits. The Platform level links the Ticket Concourse level below escalators, lifts, and stairs.

They include faregates for automatic fare collection and access between the paid and unpaid portions of the station least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for passengers in wheelchairs, those carrying heavy objects, or those travelling with prams. Commuters can buy tickets for a single or several rides using General Ticketing Machines, and contactless card transactions are possible at TransitLink Top Up Machines. Commuters can make travel queries at the station office on the North Concourse also serves as a Passenger Service Centre.


DP Architects completed the architectural design work. Drawing on the region’s importance base design incorporates maritime imagery and movement. Passenger areas are kept open and inviting by allowing natural light to stream through glass façades, while louvres provide natural ventilation while shielding passengers from wind-driven rain. 

Exit E is immediately connected to Platform B for rail services to Marina South Pier by a link bridge that spans Canberra Link. Four retail outlets plan along the bridge’s length. A flight of stairs connects the connection bridge directly to Canberra Plaza (Level 2). Commuters must take the lift between Level 2 (Linkbridge) and Level M to access Canberra Plaza without taking any steps (HDB Level 2).

Tan Zi Xi’s “Symbiosis” is a work in progress.

The artwork highlights the symbiotic interaction between flora and fauna to nourish and provide for our wonderful planet. Through her re-interpretation of their vision and sketches of the evolving flora and wildlife, as they travelled together through Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve, the artist and the Canberra community collaborated to create this symbiosis. Beyond depicting the diversity of plant and animal life, the mural depicts how living species, like the tide, expand and adapt to the changing environmental landscape caused by man and pollution.
