2002 train disruption
Trains were disrupted on 4 October 2002 on 4.44 pm when a train officer noted thick smoke coming up from a factory located near the viaduct in between Yew Tee and Kranji stations. As a precaution, services were halted and the SCDF was alerted. At 6.10 pm, services were resumed when SCDF and the technical staff gave the all clear.
On 25 December 2007, southbound train service between Yew Tee and Woodlands was disrupted at 9.43 am when a train driver spotted someone jump onto the southbound track at this station. Police and SCDF were on site to investigate the incident but no one was found.
