The momentous boring event was marked by media coverage and uplifting music that played the moment the bore broke through the final wall.

Completion of three stations -- Keppel, Cantonment, and Prince Edward -- closes the Circle Line as a complete loop.

Civil works started in 2019.

The 4km extension from HarbourFront to Marina Bay is slated to open in 2026

Commuters from Telok Blangah can save around 10 minutes travelling time when they go to Marina Bay directly.
