Change in Tanjong Pagar II
I dropped by Tanjong Pagar Railway Station yesterday.
Up to 30 June 2011, the railway station was the southern terminus of the Keretapi Tanah Melayu West Coast Railway Line.
Presently, it’s closed and off limits, as the site will be integrated with Cantonment MRT Station, one of three stations being constructed as part of Stage 6 of the Circle MRT Line. Cantonment station will open in 2026.
The front of the railway station, propped up to withstand years of construction work.
The railway station is along Spottiswoode Park Road.
The historic railway platforms behind the station have been removed and will be kept in storage during construction of the MRT station and line. They will be restored when construction is completed.
The MRT construction site. The railway platforms used to be here.
Here’s looking forward to the railway station being restored to its former glory in five years.
