Harbourfront and Marina Bay MRT Station will finally be connected through a much shorter route.
Whether it is orange or yellow, commuters of the Circle Line have long agreed on one thing – it is not a circle.
Nonetheless, Singaporeans can rejoice together as the Circle Line is expected to become an actual (albeit crooked) circle in 2026.
Under the Circle Line six (CCL6) extension, three new stations – Keppel, Cantonment and Prince Edward Road – will connect Harbourfront and Marina Bay.
With the new stations, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a Facebook post on Wednesday (Jan 12): “When CCL6 opens in 2026, commuters in Telok Blangah will have a more direct, faster and more convenient route to the Marina Bay area, cutting travelling time by up to 10 minutes.”
Travelling between Harbourfront and Marina Bay MRT Stations will also be much faster and convenient.
Tunnelling works for this stretch, including the final tunnel breakthrough from Prince Edward Road Station into Cantonment Station, have been completed on Wednesday. This means that the construction work is now about 55 per cent complete.

Minister for Transport S Iswaran, who was also present at the Tunnel Breakthrough, said in his Facebook post: “The building and expansion of our rail system is part of our continuous effort to improve transport connectivity in Singapore, and strengthen the resilience of our transport network.”
