Jurong East (NS1/EW24/JE5) is an elevated Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North–South Line, the East–West Line and the future Jurong Region Line[1].

History[edit]

Date Event
5 November 1988 Station officially opened
10 March 1990 Station interchanged with North–South Line (former East–West Line Branch Extension)
4 September 2010 - 5 September 2010 Station (East–West Line towards Pasir Ris) closed due to the construction of Jurong East Modification Project (JEMP)[2]
18 September 2010 - 19 September 2010 Station (North–South Line) closed due to the construction of Jurong East Modification Project (JEMP)[3]
27 May 2011 Jurong East Modification Project officially opened[4]

Jurong East Modification Project[edit]

The Jurong East Modification Project (JEMP) was a key infrastructural upgrading project involving the construction of two new platforms and a new track at Jurong East, allowing two trains along the North–South Line to enter and depart the station concurrently. Previously, trains had to take turns to arrive and depart from the station using a shared middle track. The new platforms and track allowed for shorter train intervals, reducing waiting times and reducing the crowding in trains.[6]

2005 bomb hoax[edit]

On 4 February 2005, Mak Hoy Meng, 29, went up to an SMRT employee at this station and gave him two handwritten notes that declared there was a bomb at one of the stations.[7] The restaurant supervisor told Yeow Meng Chai that he saw a man drop the notes and even described the fellow in detail, down to the brand of the bag he was carrying. But under questioning by the police, he admitted he had written them himself and there were no bombs. His story came apart when his description differed in later versions. By then, police officers had searched extensively for the man. However, trains were not stopped.

2011 murder[edit]

A 62 year old woman was found injured at the station at about 2.35pm on 24 November 2011. The woman was taken to the National University Hospital where she subsequently died from her injuries. Police subsequently arrested a 55 year old man for the alleged murder the following day.[8]
