Brief History of Marine Parade
Many people known Marine Parade( 马林百列) for the renowned food- Katong Laksa and East Coast Park!
Situated on the east coastal of Singapore , most of the housing (especially the hdb flats) is sitting on reclaimed land. It is not a surprise that majority of the housing developments in Marine Parade have beautiful sea-views or city-views!
Marine Parade will be served by the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) network when its station on the Thomson-East Coast Line (tEL) stage four opens by 2023.
The 13-kilometre East Coast stretch of the TEL will connect commuters living in the eastern parts of Singapore and who are not directly served by the rail network currently, such as those in Tanjong Rhu, Siglap, Marine Parade, Upper East Coast and Bedok South, to the heart of the city.
The new addition of MRT that will be ready by 2023 : Tanjong Rhu – Katong Park – Tanjong Katong – Marine Parade – Marine Terrace – Siglap – Bayshore.
LTA will also build Singapore’s first underground MRT station bicycle parks, at four stations along the East Coast stretch – including the Marine Parade and Marine Terrace stations.
WHAT IS THE THOMSON-EAST COAST LINE?
Announced by Land Transport Authority (LTA) in August 2014, The Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) is a joint line between the Thomson Line and the Eastern Region Line.
The 43km TEL will add 31 new stations to the existing rail network, with 7 interchange stations, which will link to the East-West Line, North-South Line, North-East Line, Circle Line and the Downtown Line.
