Thomson Line Station Names Finalised

News Releases
27 Jun 2014
  1. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is pleased to announce the final names for the Thomson Line (TSL) stations. These names were put to a public poll in May 2013 and attracted more than 4,000 responses. The final names have been approved by the Street and Building Names Board (SBNB).
  2. Based on the poll results, all the final station names reflect the choice of the majority who took part in the exercise. Six of the 22 stations – Woodlands, Caldecott, Stevens, Orchard, Outram Park and Marina Bay – were excluded from this exercise as they are the interchanges for the TSL and will be in operation on existing lines before the opening of the TSL.
  3. The final names of the 16 stations are:

No.

Polling and Results

  1. LTA first invited the public to suggest official names for TSL stations in January 2013. More than 4,000 suggestions were received. With these suggestions, three names for each station were shortlisted for public polling, based on a set of station naming criteria. The public were then invited to participate in the polling exercise in May 2013 to vote for their preferred TSL station names. More than 4,000 people participated in the polling exercise. Results of the polling exercise were then collated and submitted to the SBNB for approval.
  2. In finalising the station names, LTA also consulted partnering agencies such as the National Heritage Board (NHB), Urban Redevelopment Board (URA), Housing and Development Board (HDB), as well as the Malay and Tamil Language Councils, and the Advisers and grassroots of the respective constituencies where these stations are located. LTA would like to thank all participants who took part in the station naming and polling exercises.
