Little India & Rochor

Architectural works have almost completed at the 2 stations. Reinstatement to the surface at Little India has completed, and the temporary road deck above the canal has been demolished. The subsequent demolishment of the old canal is expected to be handled by the NSE contractor within the next 2 years.

Reinstatement is taking place at Rochor similarly, with the intersection between Rochor Canal Road and Bencoolen St realigned. The retrieval shaft at Queen Street has also been reinstated back. Photos in this update were taken from SSangyong's facebook page prior to June.
