Station Naming Exercise

LTA INVITES THE PUBLIC TO SUGGEST MRT STATION NAMES FOR CIRCLE LINE 6 STATIONS

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is inviting the public to send in their suggestions for official names of the three stations on Circle Line 6 between 15 May 2107 and 18 June 2017.

With this station naming exercise, the public gets the opportunity to determine this permanent aspect of the station’s identity. Naming exercises were similarly conducted previously for new MRT stations on the Circle Line, Downtown Line, and Thomson-East Coast Line.

 

Criteria for station naming

The CCL6 stations involved in the station naming exercise are (working names below): 

  1. Keppel
  2. Cantonment
  3. Prince Edward

 

Station names need to fit one of several criteria:

  1. help commuters easily identify where the station is located;
  2. illustrate the history and heritage of the station’s location; and/or
  3. reflect Singapore’s multi-racial and multi-cultural identity.

Stations are not to be named after public structures, or commercial and residential developments.

 

Ways to send in suggestions

The public can send in their suggestions online here. 

They can choose to keep the current working names or suggest new names for each or any of the three stations on Circle Line. A brief rationale for the suggested names, explaining the context of the choice and suitability have to be provided.

LTA will collate and shortlist names that meet the naming criteria, before sending a final list of names for endorsement by the Street and Building Names Board. A public polling exercise will be conducted later this year to determine the final MRT station names.
