Slowly starting in Woodlands North

The first station site on the line, located next to the Republic Polytechnic, is seeing a dramatic change as the greenery gives way to the earthy brown tones. Trees are being cleared to make way for the station site along with a new road system in the area. Once a forested area with a tree-covered hillside, the area is now being leveled after the trees have been felled.
