Marine Terrace MRT Station is a future underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Thomson-East Coast Line at the boundary of Marine Parade and Bedok planning areas, Singapore.[2] Nearby residential areas such as Marine Terrace and Telok Kurau will be served.

The station took its name from Marine Terrace, a road as well as the residential estate within the proximity.

History[edit]

On 15 August 2014, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) announced that Marine Terrace station would be part of the proposed Thomson East-Coast line (TEL). The station will be constructed as part of Phase 4, consisting of 8 stations between Founders' Memorial and Bayshore, and is expected to be completed in 2023.[3][4]

Contract T308 for the design and construction of Marine Terrace Station and 1.78 kilometres (1.11 mi) of associated tunnels was awarded to Ssangyong Engineering & Construction Co. Ltd. – Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co., Ltd. Joint Venture at a sum of S$361 million on January 2016. Construction started in 2016, with expected completion in 2023.[5][6][7]
