Tuas Link (EW33) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line. As neither the tracks can be built higher nor the concourse be built on the ground level, the concourse level has to be built on a higher level than the platforms, making it the first elevated station to have such an arrangement.[1]

!
Note: This station is affected by the Early Closure of the East West Line from 21 November 2020 to 28 November 2020. The last train will depart at 11pm on Saturdays.

History[edit]

Date Event
18 June 2017 Station officially opened
16 November 2017 - 19 November 2017 Station closed due to the Joo Koon train collision[2]
10 December 2017 Station closed due to the upgrading of signaling system on the East West Line[3]
17 December 2017

Construction incident[edit]

On 25 August 2012, an Indian national construction worker died after falling into a 68m deep bore hole at the worksite near the station. The body of the worker was recovered the next day, almost 24 hours later. Preliminary findings revealed that the workers were in the process of lowering a rebar cage when it got dislodged from its lifting chains and dragged the 30-year-old worker into a 1.5m wide bore hole.[4]
