Nicoll Highway collapse
On 20 April 2004, a section of tunnel being built for the Circle Line collapsed, apparently when a retaining wall used in the tunnel's construction gave way. This occurred near what was to become the Nicoll Highway station, not far from the Merdeka Bridge. The accident left a collapse zone 150m wide, 100m long, and 30m deep. Four workers were killed, with three more injured and one body which was never recovered.
Consequently, the station site was moved around 100m south of the initial location. Moreover, the tunnels between Promenade and Stadium were constructed on an alignment that bypassed the collapsed area. The collapse also resulted in the completion of Circle Line 1 being pushed back from 2008 to 2010.

Four large reliefs above the platform doors showcase overlooked wild plants that play a key role in holding soil together on reclaimed land, which the station was built on. The artwork gives a starring role to these unappreciated plants and aims to remind commuters of how there is value in everything if they just take a closer look.
