Katong Park station has two platforms in a stacked side platform arrangement, with both platforms utilized for trains travelling in either direction. Owing to land constraints arising from building the station next to existing developments, the stacked platform design was adopted.

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 lifts connect to the concourse above.

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 concourse features 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.

A public toilet is located in the unpaid area of the station concourse.

The Concourse is on the same level as the upper platform for train service towards Bayshore.

Construction Trivia

Contract T305 for the Construction of Katong Park Station and Tunnels for Thomson-East Coast Line was awarded to Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Co. (Singapore) Pte Ltd at a contract sum of S293.5 million in January 2016.

Shanghai Tunnel Engineering from China were previously involved in the construction of DTL1’s Promenade station and DTL2’s Newton station, Tuas West Extension, DTL3’s tunnelling portion between Tampines East Station and Upper Changi Station, as well as TEL’s Shenton Way station and tunnelling portion between Woodlands Station and Woodlands Avenue 12.

Because of the narrow site constraints—a two-lane road measuring 6m wide flanked by high-rises and at least one pre-war house—Katong Park was designed in stacked station configuration where one platform built on top of the other, as opposed to being parallel to each other. While stacked stations are uncommon but not unique to Katong Park, it was the first time that tunnel-boring machines were used to construct them. As such, the lower station (and tunnels) was built first, followed by the upper station and tunnels, hence requiring additional time. After tunnelling is done, the station sites are then excavated.
