Canberra Station

The Canberra train station is identifiable with its gradual sweeping curve across the entire length with distinct gable roof features, reinforced concrete and composite steel columns sculpted from elliptical shape, springing from ground to roof in an inverted V and incline V in elevation. 

The station barrel vault ceiling creates a dramatic space that enhances the sense of commuter arrival likened to entering a grand station. Full height curtain walls and glazed louvers on both concourse and platform levels provide generous cross-ventilation and natural lighting during the day. Skylights are introduced to filter natural light into the platform.

This is second train station in Singapore to be built over an existing operational train line and is expected to serve over 17,000 household in the vicinity.
