Prince Edward Road MRT Station (CC32) is an underground station located along the Circle Line (CCL) Stage 6. It is built along Shenton Way, near the junctions of Keppel Road an Palmer Road, bringing rail connectivity to the Shenton Way business district, nearby places of worship, and future developments in the Keppel area.

The station is named after the nearby Prince Edward Road. 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 old Shenton Way Bus Terminal, the bus terminal was relocated to a new site further north to facilitate construction works. The station is targeted for completion and opening in Year 2025.
