History

Date Event
17 April 2010 Station officially opened

Nicoll Highway collapse

On 20 April 2004, a section of tunnel being built for the Circle Line collapsed, apparently when a retaining wall used in the tunnel's construction gave way. This occurred near what was to become the Nicoll Highway station, not far from the Merdeka Bridge. The accident left a collapse zone 150m wide, 100m long, and 30m deep. Four workers were killed, with three more injured and one body which was never recovered.[1]

Consequently, the station site was moved around 100m south of the initial location. Moreover, the tunnels between Promenade and Stadium were constructed on an alignment that bypassed the collapsed area.[2] The collapse also resulted in the completion of Circle Line 1 being pushed back from 2008 to 2010.

    Four large reliefs above the platform doors showcase overlooked wild plants that play a key role in holding soil together on reclaimed land, which the station was built on. The artwork gives a starring role to these unappreciated plants and aims to remind commuters of how there is value in everything if they just take a closer look.[3]
