Cantonment MRT Station (CC31) is an underground station located along the Circle Line (CCL) Stage 6. It is built along Keppel Road, near the junction of Cantonment Link, bringing rail connectivity to Tanjong Pagar Distripark, Cantonment estate, Spottiswoode Park Estate and future developments in the Keppel area.

The station is named after the nearby Cantonment area, formerly used as lodgings assigned to troops and hence its name. The Keppel Port area south 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.

As the station box lies underneath the old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station platforms, about 290 metres of each old platform will be dismantled to facilitate construction works. They will be repaired and fully reinstated after the completion of Cantonment station in 2025. The first 80 metres of each platform extending from the railway station building is unaffected and will be protected throughout construction works.

The station is targeted for completion and opening in Year 2025.

Cantonment 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 B3 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 the lower concourse level, near the Passenger Service Centre.

Civil Defence shelter

Cantonment station is a designated Civil Defence (CD) shelter along the Circle Line Stage 6, which will be activated in times of national emergency. Apart from reinforced construction, the stations are designed and equipped with facilities to ensure the shelter environment is tolerable for all shelterees during shelter occupation. These facilities include protective blast doors, decontamination facilities, ventilation systems, power and water supply systems and a dry toilet system.
