Dear SPET Members,
Please find the next meeting which will be held at 6.30pm at The British Club on 21st March 2019.
“Preservation of Singapore’s historic Tanjong Pagar Railway Station platform for the new underground Circle Line Metro” By John Mennis, Vice-President, AECOM
Completed on 3rd of May 1932, Tanjong Pagar Railway Station was the southernmost terminal of the Malaysian Railway (West Coast Line), which stretched northwards to the Malaysia-Thai border. The line was in continuous operation until 1 July 2011. Construction for the new Cantonment Station, which is part of the final Circle Line 6 project, is currently underway. Cantonment Station is located directly under the platforms, which meant that the platforms needed to be moved to allow for the construction of the underground station.
Entry fee is Baht 200 for Members of SPET and Baht 400 for all others.
