Farrer Road (CC20) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the Circle Line.

History[edit]

Date Event
8 October 2011 Station officially opened

Construction sinkhole[edit]

On 24 May 2008, a section of Cornwall Gardens above a section between Holland Village and Farrer Road stations collapsed, creating a 3m deep hole. No one was injured, but some of the households lost their access to cable TV and Internet, as well as the water supply. This is the third road that caved in during the construction of the Circle Line.[1]

Artworks[edit]

  • CC20-Art Lineage.png
    Circle Line: Art Lineage by Erzan Bin Adam
    The artist roped in 300 members of the community to create this lively collection of lines and brushstrokes in a celebratory riot of colour. The art is meant to represent the “in-between spaces” where identity is formed – not by what is there, but what is in-between.[2]
