History[edit]

Date Event
18 October 2001 Station officially opened
10 December 2017 Station closed due to the upgrading of signaling system on the East–West Line[1]
17 December 2017

Construction controversy[edit]

Adjacent to the Singapore Polytechnic on one side, and undeveloped land on the other, the building of the station was met with reservations by some members of the public over the small area it serviced when construction began in June 1998. There were criticisms over the spending of "taxpayers' money" chiefly for use only by students of one educational institution.[2] The Land Transport Authority proceeded with the construction anyway, to serve commuters along Singapore Polytechnic with Dover housing estate.[3]
