Roadshow: First look

This morning marked the beginning of the LTA Rail Story roadshows, starting at Parkway Parade mall. There are a number of panels offering limited, and slightly vague at best, information on the construction of underground MRT lines in Singapore. Little information from the construction of early lines is shown and the large focus is on the future and things coming ahead (most of which can't be seen yet) - the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line, Cross Island Line, Jurong Region Line and other extensions.

Some of the exhibits are interesting though, as they offer more details about the East Coast Line stations. While LTA mentions that you can see the layout of the station closest to you, what they mean are simply the existing maps for the stations updated with circles depicting the locations of the entrances and exits. Only a sole scale model of Marine Parade station is available. Nonetheless, if you'd like to take a look for yourself, do head on down while the roadshow is on.
