The Circle Line 6 (CCL6) extension will add three stations between HarbourFront and Marina Bay MRT stations, closing the loop for CCL. The stations are: Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward Road. The whole CCL will link to all existing train lines and shorten travel time, while also giving commuters more alternative routes that bypass the busy interchanges at City Hall and Raffles Place. This will take the sum total number of CCL stations to 33, including 12 interchange stations that hook up to other MRT Lines.

Did You Know? Did you realize icon CCL6 will be built in areas which can be fairly dense and near to heritage sites. Therefore, special efforts are now being made to ensure the works don’t affect buildings with historical and architectural significance. Cantonment MRT station has been sensitively integrated with the old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station (which is gazetted as a national monument). To facilitate construction, several elements of the former railway station’s train platforms will soon be removed. LTA and the Urban Redevelopment Authority are seeking advice from the heritage consultant and members of the heritage community on possible solutions for the affected platforms. To cater for future needs, Kim Chuan Depot will undoubtedly be expanded to almost double its capacity from 70 to 133 trains. The integrated depot will house 550 buses, that will allow us to optimise land use. The depot will be completed at the same time frame as CCL6 in 2025.
