History

Date Event
27 December 2015 Station officially opens

Soil near station sinks

About 25m of the rightmost two lanes on Bukit Timah Road has been closed off to traffic after a nearby drain embankment caved in on 17 January 2012 in the course of tunnelling works for the Downtown Line. Engineers found a 14m precast segment of the Bukit Timah canal wall near the junction of Bukit Timah Road and Clementi Road dislodged, and some gaps in the ground were formed around that segment of the canal. It then stopped its tunnelling works to ensure safety and has begun to inject cement to stabilise the ground.[1]

Art in Transit

'The Natural History of Singapore's Mythical Botanic Creatures' by the "Artists Caravan" is an artwork illustrating the juxtaposition between natural and built habitats in the environment. It also instigates curious cues to activate dialogue of the oscillating environment.
