Canberra MRT Station (NS12) is a upcoming above-ground station along the North South Line (NSL), currently under construction and expected to be opened in 2019. It is located within the Sembawang Springs planning subzone, (near the border with the Sembawang East subzone), and next to Canberra Link.
Named after the capital city of Australia, nearby areas were given Western names owing to a old British Naval Base along the northern coast. It is the second MRT station to have been built on an existing train line, the other being Dover station which opened in 2001. Four exits will be built at ground level, and a fifth on the opposite side of Canberra Link, which connects directly to the city-bound train platform via an overhead bridge.
Construction work started in March 2016 and is expected to open in 2019. The station will serve nearby estates such as Sembawang Springs, as well as upcoming residential developments.
