Kupang LRT Station (SW3) is an LRT station on the Sengkang LRT Line West Loop in Fernvale, Singapore. It opened on 27 June 2015, and was the last station along the Sengkang LRT Line to open for revenue service, more than 12 years after the first stations opened along the east loop.

On 15 June 2015, SBS Transit announced that the station will be opened for passenger service on 27 June 2015.[1] The station is located near the western portion of Sengkang Riverside Park.

Etymology[edit]

Kupang fishing was a source of livelihood for the villagers in the past. This can be related to 'Kuppam', a Tamil word for fishing village. However, there is a contradiction as the word kupang means mussel in Malay.
