End of the line for KTM station hawkers
By Fiona Low, The Straits Times, 24 Jun 2011.
Last call for those who enjoy the teh tarik or chapati served by the stalls at the railway station in Tanjong Pagar.
By Sunday, most will be gone, ahead of the closure of the 79-year-old station at the end of this month.
Many stallholders there told The Straits Times they are still unsure what they will do next or where else they can set up shop.
A new chapter in the history of rail travel here opens on July 1, with the move by Malayan Railway (KTM) to the Woodlands Train Checkpoint, and Singapore taking over ownership of the railway land following a breakthrough land swop with Malaysia last year.
