On 11 March 2012, a worker was killed at a site near the Botanic Gardens, beside the contractor's site office after a concrete slab fell on him. Masud al-Mamun, 35, was operating an excavator deep in the ground when the slab fell on him. Rescuers had to use a breaking tool kit to break a portion of the concrete slab. It took nearly five hours to reach the man lying motionless on the ground. This is the first casualty related case in the construction of the Downtown Line.
2017 Train Disruption
Train service on the Downtown Line were delayed on 3 May 2017, 5.45am due to Platform Screen Doors malfunctioned and could not be automatically open. Staff had to manually operate the doors whenever a train arrived at the station and this took some time which caused a delay to train services. To minimise inconvenience to commuters and enable the engineers to resolve the problem as soon as possible, a decision was subsequently taken to close the city-bound platform (towards Chinatown). With the closure of the platform, train services continue without delay along the Line.
The fault was rectified at 12.54pm later the day and the platform reopened for passenger service. The faulty doors however was remained closed for more in-depth repairs to be conducted after the last train departed.
Art in Transit
Circle Line: Aquatic Fauna No. 1 by Kai Lam and Chua Chye Teck was displayed above the platform doors, contains symbolic imageries of water and aquatic animals using the Chinese paper cutting technique. The "fauna" mural not only highlights the station's proximity to the Botanic Gardens, but also complements the 2-storey high water-cascading wall in the station, the first to have such a feature within the station.
Downtown Line: What is a Tree? by Shirley. Various vistas of the Tembusu on the front lawn of the Botanic Gardens are created to pose the ontological questions.
