Ang Mo Kio (NS16/CR11) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line and the future Cross Island Line[1].

History

Date Event
7 November 1987 Station officially opened
20 May 2019 Station (towards Jurong East) closed due to the construction of Canberra station[2]

2003 accident

Ms Neo Shiea Chee, a 25-year-old teacher at Holy Innocents' High School, was run over by a southbound train at Ang Mo Kio MRT station shortly before 7pm on 11 January 2003 when she fell into the tracks and was crushed by an oncoming train. She was too engrossed in reading her book and was unaware that the train was already approaching the station. Trains were not disrupted as Ang Mo Kio station's northbound trains used the middle platform.

2011 accident

Nitcharee Peneakchansak, a 14-year-old Thai, was seriously injured and lost both her legs after she fell onto the track and was hit by a train at Ang Mo Kio on 3 April 2011.[3] Peneakchansak left Singapore on 13 June that year after recuperating in hospital. SMRT had reportedly offered the family $5,000 as compensation. The victim's father, rejected the compensation as her prosthetic legs will cost around $100,000 and must be changed every three to five years.[4] Her father decided to sue SMRT for S$3.4 million, the amount equivalent to the price for the 20 pairs of prosthetic legs that Peneakchansak will need in her lifetime.[5]

2018 smoke

On 5 February 2018, smoke was seen rising from an escalator heading towards the linkway to AMK Hub at around 1.20pm. While train service was not affected, the escalators were temporarily shut down due to safety checks, and the linkway was temporarily closed until 6.10pm. Preliminary investigations showed that the smoke came from overheated motor bearings in one of the faulty escalators. One SMRT staff was hospitalised for inhaling too much smoke.[6]
