|Lines Served||North South Line|
|Opened||2 Nov 2019|
Canberra MRT Station (NS12) is an above-ground station along the North South Line (NSL) which opened on 2 November 2019. It is located along Canberra Link, at the junction with Canberra Way.
Named after the capital city of Australia, nearby areas were given Western names owing to an old British Naval Base along the northern coast. It is the second MRT station to have been built on an existing train line (infill station), the other being Dover station which opened in 2001. Four exits are built at ground level, and a fifth exit is built at platform level, linking the city-bound train platform with an overhead bridge that spans over Canberra Link.
Construction work started in March 2016 and the station was opened on 2 November 2019. The station serves nearby estates such as Sembawang Springs, as well as upcoming residential developments.
Architectural design work was performed by DP Architects. The design references nautical imagery and movement, drawing from the region’s role as a naval base. Passenger areas are kept open and inviting with natural daylight streaming in through glass façades, while louvres bring in natural ventilation yet protecting against wind-driven rain. Landscaping is also thoughtfully incorporated into the design through the integration of planters along the periphery of the platform and a green roof over the station’s covered linkway.

Art In Transit: “Symbiosis” by Tan Zi Xi
The artwork brings to light the symbiotic relationship between flora and fauna, which provide for and feed from our precious earth. The symbiosis between the two is a reflection of the collaboration between the artist and the community of Canberra, through her re-interpretation of their imagination and sketches of the evolving flora and fauna as they journeyed together through Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve. Beyond capturing the richness of plant and animal life, the mural manifests how living organisms grow and adapt constantly to the changing environmental landscape caused by man and pollution, like the ebb and flow of the tide.
