History

Before the station opened, the Singapore Civil Defence Force conducted the second ever Shelter Open House on 15–16 February 2003, together with Chinatown, Serangoon and Hougang stations.

Incidents

On the evening of 25 December 2007, some technical difficulties were experienced along the North East Line caused delays for train services. A member of the public who was affected by the delay said she waited for at least 20 minutes for the train at the station.[1]

Trains along the North East Line were delayed from about 3.15 pm to 3.36 pm on 6 April 2012 due to a signalling fault, affecting services between Chinatown and HarbourFront stations. One train had to be turned round to the northbound direction at Farrer Park MRT Station to "regulate service".[2]

Art in Transit

Rhythmic Exuberance by Poh Siew Wah captured the spirit of the locality's sporting heritage with the Horse Racing and Soccer series of artworks.

Aeroplane by Poh Siew Wah paid tribute to the first aeroplane landing in Singapore in 1911 at the Old Racecourse Road in Farrer Park.[3][4]
