History

Date Event
17 April 2010 Station officially opens

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 150 m wide, 100 m long, and 30 m deep. Four workers were killed, with three more injured and one body which was never recovered. The collapse set back the completion of the Circle Line Stage 1 from 2008 to 17 April 2010.[1]

Art in Transit

Re-claiming the Peripherals by Khiew Huey Chian features how different subjects relating to a place can be developed through various shapes and formations of wild plants which was frequently overlooked in Singapore. It also show that anything can be of value if we just keep an open mind to observe the potential of things around us.
