Bishan (NS17/CC15) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line and the Circle Line.

Before peak period, some trains from Bishan Depot will arrive at platform B of the North South Line station to travel southbound towards Marina South Pier.

History

Date Event
7 November 1987 Station officially opens
4 April 2009 Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) Shelter Open House
28 May 2009 Station interchanges with Circle Line

Modification of Station for Circle Line linkage

Major alterations were performed on the original North South Line station to be linked to the Circle Line. A new air-conditioned southbound platform to serve the southbound trains (heading towards Marina South Pier) was officially opened by the then Minister for Transport, Mr Raymond Lim on 27 July 2008. The original platform is now dedicated to only northbound train services (heading towards Jurong East). A wall now separates the southbound tracks and the northbound platform, and southbound train doors no longer open on the right towards the old platform. The northbound platform was also upgraded with air conditioning and full height platform screen doors where train doors open on the right, and was officially completed on 22 May 2009. It was formerly the only MRT station on the network that was sub-surface between 1987 and 2008, and has since got its North South Line platforms separated to make space for the linkage to Circle line.

Art in Transit

The Circle Line section of this station displays the Art in Transit artwork Move!. There are three murals created by Soh Ee Shaun depicting landmarks that residents of the Bishan area identify with.

Cultural impact

Being located on the site of the Peck San Theng cemetery, the station is rumoured to be haunted, and has been the subject of several Singaporean urban legends, as well as the site for alleged ghost encounters. A 1988 article in The New Paper mentioned rumoured sightings of headless ghosts at the station.[1]

The newspaper The Sunday Times ran an article debunking an urban legend associated with the station, along with an article featuring an account by a passenger who claimed that, while riding on a train passing through the station one morning in the early 1990s, she was groped by several unseen hands before passing out. She was later revived by fellow passengers.[2] There are also other alleged encounters of ghosts and other entities by several passengers in and around the station, such as headless figures, footsteps coming from the roof of the train, and phantom passengers who do not cast reflections on the train windows.
