Location

Geylang Bahru MRT Station (DT24) is a future underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Downtown Line in Kallang, Singapore. It is located along Kallang Bahru, at the junction with Geylang Bahru, hence the station's name. The station is within walking distances to Kallang Basin Swimming Complex as well as Kallang MRT Station.

Facilities in the vicinity[edit]

The station is located near to Kallang Basin Swimming Complex, Kallang station, Boon Keng station and Lorong 1 Geylang Bus Terminal.

History[edit]

Geylang Bahru MRT Station was formerly known as Kallang Bahru MRT Station until August 2011. This change in name avoids possible confusion between this station and Kallang station, especially with the two stations located so close to each other.

Construction tender had been awarded in June 2011 but due to unforeseen circumstances, this had to be delayed to October 2011 due to sewerage works. Road realignment started on 28 January 2012.
