Tuas Crescent MRT Station nearing completion

It was first announced on 11 January 2011 by then-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 are built in the middle of a vehicular bridge, a historical first for Singapore train services.[source?]

It has the longest staircase in all stations with 105 steps, and the longest escalator of 17.5m in Singapore's rail network. [1]
