2011 Train disruptions

This station was part of 2011 MRT train disruptions on 15 and 17 December 2011, caused by a misalignment between the trains' current collector shoes, which collect power from the third rail, and the third rail itself. These were Singapore's two largest MRT disruptions at the time of occurrence.[1][2][3][4]

Art in Transit

Interchange by Milenko and Delia Prvacki can be found on the station walls along the linkway between North South Line and North East Line.

Singaporean artist Baet Yoke Kuan created a three dimensional relief work on the large columns that support the Circle Line sector of the station, inspired by the concept 'man and the environment'.
