Keppel MRT Station (CC30) is an underground station located along the Circle Line (CCL) Stage 6. It is built just off Keppel Road, bringing rail connectivity to both Keppel Distripark and future developments in the Keppel area.
The station is named after the nearby Keppel Harbour, named after Captain Henry Keppel who discovered the sheltered, deep water harbour. The Keppel Port area east of the station is planned to be redeveloped after 2030, once the container port is moved to Tuas. The future Greater Southern Waterfront region currently under planning will provide more options for city living.
The station is targeted for completion and opening in Year 2025.

Keppel MRT Station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort. A set of escalators, stairs and a lift connects the platform level to the concourse level one floor above. The concourse wraps around the platform, creating a large interior space which gives the station a spacious feel.
Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.
The station concourse at Basement ? feature faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.
General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with Top-up Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries or perform card transactions using cash payment.
Toilets are located at concourse level, near the Passenger Service Centre.
