Location

Tuas Crescent MRT Station (EW31) is a future elevated Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line, part of the Tuas West Extension (TWE) in Tuas, Singapore. This station is to provide rail connection to Tuas South and the central part of Tuas from the rest of the island.

History[edit]

It was first announced on 11 January 2011 by Transport Minister Mr Raymond Lim in a speech while visiting Bedok when new platform screen doors opened there. It was expected to be completed by 2016 and would benefit an estimated 100,000 commuters daily.

According to Lianhe Zaobao, this station and the tracks linking it will be built in the middle of a vehicular bridge, the first ever in Singapore.

It was later announced on 26 October 2016, that the station will be opened in the second quarter of 2017 instead of 2016, so that the station can take advantage of the new signalling system, which was being implemented in all of the NSEWL stations.

Announced on 27 April 2017, the station will open on 18 June 2017.[1][2]
