Finally the missing link to the Sembawang-Yishun MRT puzzle is complete.

This also means that residents in the area no longer need to take feeder buses to Sembawang or Yishun MRT, now that Canberra station is just a stone’s throw away.

Journey to town 10 minutes shorter

Despite the announcement earlier this year, Land Transport Authority (LTA) has graciously reminded residents in the north that they can look forward to the station’s opening on 2 Nov.

They even made a cute infographic video announcing this in a Facebook post on Thursday (10 Oct).

Canberra station will make the trip to Orchard or Jurong East up to 10 minutes shorter, LTA had earlier informed Singaporeans.

Both Jurong East and Orchard will be just 10 stops away.

The 1-day closure of the 5 stations during long weekends in May was definitely worth it, as Canberra residents can look forward to a lifetime of convenient commutes.
