History[edit]

Date Event
17 April 2010 Station officially opened

2011 train disruption[edit]

On 20 September 2011, a power fault disrupted train services at all stations on the Circle Line. The four-hour delay left about 27,000 commuters stranded during rush-hour. It was reported that leaks and a damaged electrical cable along the line were the cause of the disruption.[1] The disruption started at about 5.30 am. Train services were gradually restored from 8am and all services were restored just before 10am.[2] Investigations were carried out and the fault was traced back to a faulty cable beneath the platform level at this station.[3]

Artworks[edit]

    This artwork captures the colourful everyday life in the Dakota Cresent heartlands. The large art piece features household objects found inside and outside residents’ homes, along the HDB flat corridors and other shared spaces. By recording these items, it also acts as a visible archive of the area.[4]
