Tuas West Extension Station Naming Exercise‏

08 January 2012

This is my suggestions for the 4 East-West MRT Line Tuas West Extension stations.

For more information: LTA News Release
Avenues to send in suggestions: http://talk2lta.lta.gov.sg

Working Station Name: Tuas
Suggested Station Name: Gul
Rationale: It is at the border of Gul Industrial Sector. This station will be an interchange with the proposed Tuas South Branch Line. Hence the name needs to be unique. By naming this station "Gul" could reduce the possible confusion with the other 3 stations (or more future Tuas South stations), which are all within Tuas Industrial Estate.

Working Station Name: Tuas Crescent
Suggested Station Name: Tuas
Rationale: This station is at the geographic centre of Tuas Industrial Estate. Furthermore this station is located near to the defunct Tuas Fishing Village.

Working Station Name: Tuas West
Suggested Station Name: Bajau
Rationale: Before massive land reclamation in the 1980s, the vicinity was the coastline known as Tanjong Bajau.

Working Station Name: Tuas Link
Suggested Station Name: Second Link
Rationale: It is at the vicinity of Second Link (Tuas Checkpoint), a well established landmark. By naming this station "Second Link" could reduce the possible confusion with the other 3 (or more future) stations, which are all within Tuas Industrial Estate.
