SINGAPORE — The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has announced the names of the 10 stations on the East Coast stretch of the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) and Downtown Line 3 Extension (DTL3e), after a public poll on the preferred names.

The TEL station names are: Tanjong Rhu, Katong Park, Tanjong Katong, Marine Parade, Marine Terrace, Siglap, Bayshore, Bedok South and Sungei Bedok.

Xilin is the station’s name for DTL3e. Sungei Bedok will serve as a TEL/DTL3e interchange.

Members of the public were invited to suggest station names for the East Coast stretch of the TEL and DTL3e in April last year.

The final names were whittled down from 150 suggestions, and about 38,000 votes were received during the polling exercise in October last year.

The LTA consulted partnering Government agencies such as the National Heritage Board, Urban Redevelopment Board and Housing Development Board in finalising the station names.
