Woodlands MRT Station (NS9/TE2) is an elevated/underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line and the future Thomson East Coast Line. It is integrated with the Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange located beneath the station.

History

The government came up with a proposal to build the North South Line Woodlands Extension in 1990 with the aim of extending the existing North-South Line, thus connecting Choa Chu Kang in the northwest to Yishun in the North. Woodlands was one of four stations in the initial proposal which was later expanded to six. Construction commenced in 1991 and the station was opened on 10 February 1996 along with the other five stations on the Woodlands Extension.[1]

On 4 November 2013, it is the first MRT station to be awarded with the Building and Construction Authority’s Green Mark (Gold) and tenants of Woodlands Xchange have become the first shop owners in Singapore to be certified with the Project: Eco-Shop label.[2]

Artwork

A 15 m high sculpture called Faces II weighing 4000 kg, designed by Singaporean artist Min Chen, was on display at the station.[3] However, it is not included in the Art in Transit programme.

Platform screen doors & High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Fans

Together with the elevated stations along the North South Line and East West Line, it was originally built without any Platform Screen Doors to prevent commuters from falling into the train tracks and HVLS Fans to improve air ventilated on the platforms. The station was retrofitted with half-height platform screen doors which commenced operations on 30 November 2011 and HVLS Blade fans which commenced operation on 6 November 2012.
