June 2019 - Prince Edward Road station progress

Prince Edward Road station is located in an extremely tight location bounded by Shenton Way to the west, the Marina Coastal Expressway to the south and the Bestway building to the north-east. Several religious buildings dot the site, making it a tough fit to construct a station in the location while being able to maneuver machinery about the site.
