Construction

This station is said to be the most challenging station to build on the North East Line, due to the large number of buildings above ground, most with reinforced concrete or timber piles and all in marine clay.[1] Another feat was that they had to preserve Garden Bridge, a large overhead bridge on bore piles, while building the station below. The tidal Eu Tong Sen canal was also diverted into four two-meter diameter steel pipes slung under the temporary traffic decks (two on each side). Rigorous safety precautions ensured there were no fatal accidents during the construction.

Art in Transit

The Phoenix’s-Eye Domain by Tan Swie Hian, can be found in the North East Line part of the station. The artwork depicts the significance of Chinatown using Chinese calligraphy paintings.[2]

Flying Colours by Cheo Chai Hiang, can be found in the Downtown Line part of the station. The artwork depicts hanging clothes on poles outside windows, delivering the illusion towards commuters passing by that the clothes are flying in the wind.[3]
