Lentor (TE5) is a future underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the Thomson–East Coast Line.[1]

History

On 1 March 2018, a 48 year old construction worker fell from a raised working platform 2.5m above the ground, while working in a tunnel connecting to Lentor station. The accident happened at 3.35am, and the worker was employed to dismantle components of tunnel boring machines, following the completion of tunnelling works. He was pronounced dead by paramedics at 4.30am. The Ministry of Manpower (MOM) said the chamber, which was being lowered using chain blocks, suddenly swung and hit the platform that one of the workers was standing on, causing him to fall from it.[2][3]
