History

Date Event
27 December 2015 Station officially opened

Structural integrity

Between July and August 2012, concerns were raised on the structural integrity of terraced and semi-detached residences surrounding the station, believed to be linked to the construction of the Downtown Line. This came after complaints about hairline cracks appearing on walls inside and outside the affected properties. It was understood that cracks began widening in the period of investigation. Apart from the cracks, some car porch roofs and walls had shifted, and some gates could no longer be opened. Checks were made by the authority and the houses were found to be structurally safe. Additional steps were taken to repair damages to at least 40 Watten Estate properties.[1]

Incorrect Tamil name

During the Downtown Line 2 open house on 5 December 2015, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) was informed by netizens that the Tamil translation of the station was incorrect. An apology was issued in the evening for the error and the error was rectified.[2]
