Braddell MRT Station
|Address||377 Lorong 1 Toa Payoh|
|Line(s)||North South Line|
|Opened||7 November 1987|
Braddell MRT Station (NS18) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line. At the completion of the initial MRT network, it was the only underground station with side platforms due to space constraints.
When the MRT system was built in the 1980s, majority of the MRT stations were designed to have an island platform. However, the closely built HDB blocks in the area meant that the train tunnels had to be constructed directly beneath Lorong 2 Toa Payoh, following the bend of the road. As a result of the space constraints, the station was built with side platforms.
Braddell was among the first of five stations opened for operation on 7 November 1987.
There was a robbery in the station on 7 May 2008. A robber tried to rob from 7-Eleven within the station at 3.10 pm, but was instead locked in the shop by the cashier who dashed out of the shop. The robber could not escape and the Police arrived shortly but the robber threatened to commit suicide. The robber was finally apprehended by the police's taser gun and arrested.
