Stevens

The magnificent structure at Stevens has started taking shape since our last update in May. The exit structure will be integrated with the cooling tower, vent shafts, taxi stand and bus stop. This will be the first stacked station to not feature any escalators or stairs within the paid area. 

Under the DTL project, Stevens will initially open with its main entrance E along Bukit Timah Road. The remaining entrances will be completed under the TSL project in 2021. Drawn by Seloloving, Skyscrapercity
A render of what the Stevens station exit will look like once completed.
The entire station layout is extremely complicated as the architecture maximizes the amount of end to end connections between the various exits, concourse and platform levels. Below is a simplified layout.

B1 - TSL Concourse
B2 - DTL Expo Bound Platform/ Future TSL mezz & canal linkage to Entrance C and D
B3 - DTL mezzanine/ Future TSL platforms
B4 - DTL BP Bound Platform
A rough guide of the Stevens station cross section, done by y2koh, Skyscrapercity.
*B2: canal linkage to Entrance C and D is not directly linked to DTL platform/concourse
*B3: DTL mezzanine & Future TSL platforms will not be directly linked
There will be 2 lift shafts. The south shaft will connect the surface to both unpaid levels. The north shaft will connect the surface to an initial unpaid areas at the north end of both platforms. These unpaid areas will eventually be converted to paid areas for the linkage between the TSL transfer levels, and the faregates will be relocated to the street level.

Additions to the DTL structure under the Thomson Line project:
  • A further 2 lifts will be constructed at the roof of the DTL station in the future to link the TSL concourse to the surface of entrance E. (Ground level to B1) 
  • A third lift will be constructed directly below the Wayang Satu Flyover to link the TSL Concourse, canal subway and DTL mezzanine. (B1, B2 and B3)
Vent Shaft 2 taking shape at the corner of the station. A future taxi bay will be located here when Robin Walk reopens
Cooling Tower and South lift shaft. The 2 future lift shafts leading to the TSL concourse will eventually be constructed where the crane is.
Entrance E which will link to the DTL concourse/Upper Platform
