Rochor receives a roof

Since our previous update in August, work has moved swiftly that another update is warranted. Most notably is that Entrance A next to Sim Lim Square has received the roof framework and will begin installation soon after.

Additionally, the future underground infrastructure - the future North-South Expressway (NSE) tunnels - which sit on top of the Rochor station roof slab have been completed. The completed expressway tunnels can be seen clearly just metres below the street level. We expect that work to demolish the concrete beams will begin some time soon once all other underground equipment has been removed.

The design for Rochor station has been influenced by the electrical circuit, thanks to its location next to Sim Lim Square.
