Platform level of Bendemeer station
11 Kallang Bahru|
|Operated by||SBS Transit DTL|
|Opened||21 October 2017|
Situated under Kallang Bahru, this station serves the commercial developments around Lavender Street and the industrial estates along Kallang Avenue. The famous Jalan Besar Stadium, Lavender MRT station and Boon Keng MRT station are in close proximity.
There were several names used for the station. These are Bendemeer and Kallang Avenue. In the end, Bendemeer was chosen.
The contract for the construction of this station was awarded to Penta-Ocean Construction Co., Ltd. for approximately S$215.24 million in August 2011.
The twin 2.25 km tunnels between Jalan Besar, Bendemeer and Geylang Bahru stations were bored under old pre-war shophouses along Jalan Besar Road and required careful and stringent control of the tunnelling works beneath it. The tunnels were constructed using steel-fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) segments, the first in South East Asia, which enhances the long term durability of the tunnels.
