Katong Park MRT station
Katong Park station under construction at Fort Road.

Katong Park MRT station (TE24) is a future underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Thomson-East Coast Line situated at the boundary of the planning areas of Kallang and Marine Parade, Singapore.
The station is located underneath the junction of Fort Road, Tanjong Rhu Road and Meyer Road. This station is next to the Katong Park, hence the station's name. It will serve residents of nearby condominiums, as well as students of Dunman High School, when it is opened.
This station was first announced on 15 August 2014.
The station has faced several challenges, notably space constraints, due to a narrow construction corridor along Meyer Road, and the ground at the station is primarily soft clay since it is built on reclaimed land. Due to the space constrains, the station platforms will be on different levels, similarly to Promenade MRT station and Stevens MRT station. To minimise construction risks due to the soft ground, selected stretches of the ground were strengthened to facilitate tunnelling works and the diaphragm walls have a depth of 65m, beyond the height of the station box which is only 28m.
