[Press Release] Train platform canopy structures of former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station to be fully
#1
Train platform canopy structures of former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station to be fully reinstated after completion of new mrt station
Press Release    27/05/16

1.  Following the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) announcement in October 2015 that the future Circle Line 6 (CCL6) Cantonment station1 will be integrated with the former Tanjong Pagar Railway Station building, LTA has today called a tender for advanced works to dismantle, repair, and reinstate the former railway station’s train platform canopy structures. The canopy structures will be fully reinstated after the completion of Cantonment station in 2025, and retain the sense of heritage and memories of the old train platform area.

2   The old train platform canopies are important to the history and memories of Tanjong Pagar Railway Station, a national monument with deep historical, architectural and social significance. The decision to reinstate the canopy structures was taken following consultations with members of the heritage community, as well as detailed studies conducted with an architectural conservation specialist on its technical viability.

3   As Cantonment station will be built under the platform area of the former railway station and carefully integrated with the railway station building, about 290 metres of each old platform will be dismantled to facilitate construction works. The first 80 metres of each platform extending from the railway station building is unaffected and will be protected throughout construction works. See Annex A for the locations of the platforms.
