Emergency exercise

On June 5, 2008, 280 youths spent the night at City Hall, learning how to deal with an emergency in a train tunnel.

At around midnight, the young campers boarded a train and as the train departed, there was a simulated bomb explosion. They activated the detrainment ramps at both ends of the train, and evacuated to safety via an escape shaft. The students also used the items from their Ready Bags to "survive" the attack.[1]

2011 Train disruptions

Refer to 2011 MRT disruptions for more information.

This station was part of 2011 MRT train disruptions on 15 and 17 December 2011, caused by a misalignment between the trains' current collector shoes, which collect power from the third rail, and the third rail itself. These were Singapore's two largest MRT disruptions at the time of occurrence.[2][3][4][5]

Blackout

A power failure and blackout occurred at the station on 6 July 2012 at about 1.30 pm, causing the upper platforms to turn pitch black. Air-conditioning and escalators also stopped functioning. Emergency lighting was turned on immediately after the incident occurred. However, train services were not affected by the incident.[6] Lighting was progressively restored from 2 pm, and was back to normal at 3.15 pm. All escalators have also been turned on.[7]

Art in Transit

There is a mural along the wall of the station called Vitreous Enamelled Mural by Simon Wong. However, this art piece is not under the Art in Transit scheme.
