Criteria for station naming
The CCL6 stations involved in the station naming exercise are (working names below):
- Prince Edward
Station names need to fit one of several criteria:
- help commuters easily identify where the station is located;
- illustrate the history and heritage of the station’s location; and/or
- 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.
