Punggol Coast MRT Station (NE18) is a future underground station along the North East Line (NEL). Expected to be completed by Year 2024, it will serve the Punggol Digital District, while taking over Punggol Station as the northern terminus of the NEL.

Bus connections are offered via the future Punggol North Bus Interchange.


Punggol Coast station will be built in the heart of the Punggol Digital District, underneath business park developments built by JTC (designated Parcel CC1 and CC2 in planning diagrams). The station is also located underneath the old stretch of of Punggol Road, which will be transformed into a green corridor.

When the North East Line was built, the overrun tracks north of Punggol curved westward, potentially indicating plans for a future station might have been built in Punggol West, or extending to the north of Singapore.  However, the new plan for the North East Line Extension (NELe) calls for a station in the east, and hence, the new tunnels curve to the west and then to the east, to join with the new station.

Formally announced on 7 June 2017, the station is part of the 1.6-kilometre-long North East Line Extension (NELe) originally planned for 2030. This construction date was brought forward to support developments in Punggol North, notably the Punggol Digital District, Singapore’s pilot Enterprise District comprising JTC Corporation’s (JTC) mixed-use developments, and the Singapore Institute of Technology’s (SIT) new campus, and new residential estates at Northshore and Punggol Point.

Construction Trivia

Contract 715 for the Construction of cut and cover and bored tunnels for NEL extension was awarded to China State Construction Engineering Corporation Limited (Singapore Branch) for S$79.0 million on 8 December 2017. Construction began in the first half of 2018.

The LTA revealed that for the first time, it adopted the use of design thinking in conceptualising the Punggol Coast station. This saw the agency conducting studies and prototype concepts aimed at improving the commuting experience, before incorporating certain features into the station’s design. For instance, social spaces were conceived for people to interact and meet-up, rather than merely a means of getting from point to point. It also considered a dedicated space where the community, including students, will have a dedicated space to showcase exhibits such as their school projects.

Initially projected for completion in Year 2023, the COVID-19 pandemic delayed the opening to Year 2024. This was announced during a visit by Transport Minister Ong Ye Kung on 13 November 2020, at a ceremony to mark the completion of tunnel boring works from the existing Punggol station to the future Punggol Coast station. Around 40% of construction work was completed by then.

    I believe a suitable Chinese name for this station is ‘榜鹅海岸’.
