Dover MRT Station
An engineering feat, an urban landmark
Rising 21 metres above ground, the construction is an engineering feat. It is the first time a station is built above an operational train line. Stainless steel columns reach up to the station’s distinctive curved roof, offering an airy, spacious feel.
The station was built quickly, safely and efficiently

It is a testament of the skills of designers and builders
Efficient design and practical construction methods were used to overcome the challenges of working within busy multi-lane carriageways and over an operational train route. Land take was minimised and utility diversions were avoided. The result is a train station that is a transport facility and an urban landmark.
