Location

Springleaf MRT station (TE4) is a future underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Thomson-East Coast Line in Yishun planning area, Singapore. It will be located next to the row of 2-storey shophouses along Upper Thomson Road.[1] When completed, this station will serve the nearby housing estate of Springside and Nee Soon army camp. The tracks between this station and Woodlands South station are the longest on the Thomson-East Coast Line.

It is also the nearest MRT station towards the Singapore Zoo, Night Safari and River Safari. Currently before this future MRT station opens, these existing stations at Ang Mo Kio, Woodlands and Choa Chu Kang would serve as the nearest MRT stations at the Mandai Road area towards the zoo, with respective bus services, 138, 926 & 927 provided.

History[edit]

This station was first announced on 29 August 2012. Construction began on 15 June 2014 at the former Seletar Institute.[2]
