Controversy In Construction

Adjacent to Singapore Polytechnic on one side, and undeveloped land on the other, the building of the station was met with reservations by some members of the public over the small area it serviced. There were criticisms over the spending of "taxpayers' money" chiefly for use only by students of one educational institution.[1] Land Transport Authority, the government department in charge of public transport operations, proceeded with the construction anyway, using the justification that the service area extends to public housing flats on either end of the polytechnic, and that the undeveloped land opposite is slated for extensive development, largely residential in nature. The service area can also be thought to extend to the town of Dover.
