Changi Airport (CG2) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line.

History[edit]

Date Event
8 February 2002 Station officially opened
7 July 2017 Station involved in Exercise Northstar 10 (Counter terrorism)[1]

Station Planning[edit]

The earlier plans had long been made for a new line branching off from the existing East West Line at Tanah Merah station with some conceptual plans showing a tentative route alignment up to the airport and continuing towards the city along the east coast of the island.[2] However, the route alignment showed a deviation from previous plans. The final plan involved building only the first two stations, namely the {{Stn|Expo} and Changi Airport stations, the underground station built between Terminal 2 and Terminal 3. The alignment of the station at the airport has been switched perpendicularly such that the station leads to two of the terminals directly from either end of the station.[3]

Initial trains operation[edit]

Train services were initially operated as a through service from Boon Lay station when this station opened. However, to cut costs due to ridership falling below expectations, the service was reverted into shuttle service on 22 July 2003.

2002 incident[edit]

On 24 July 2002, a glass panel of the atria wall shattered. The area was quickly closed off, but train services were not affected.[4]

2003 incident[edit]

On 24 September 2003, a man died at the station, apparently having fallen five stories from the departure hall.[5]

2020 track cracks[edit]

On 17 January 2020, SMRT had found a crack in the crossing near this station during inspection works in the morning. Trains have to be diverted to only one platform and have to travel at a slower speed as they approach the affected crossing.[6]
