History[edit]

Date Event
12 December 1987 Station officially opened

2011 train disruption[edit]

On 17 December 2011, a faulty train heading southbound was stucked between Orchard and Somerset stations at 6.50am. This caused a train disruption between Toa Payoh and Marina Bay stations. Train service resumed at 1pm later in the day.[2] Later investigation found out that the disruption was caused by damaged current collector device (CCD) shoes on train which draws powers from the third rail that is link to the previous disruption 2 days earlier. As a result of the damaged CCD shoes, a portion of southbound track third rail between Newton and Orchard stations sagged.[3]

    The mobile of delicate sculptures resembling flowers was originally hung here before it was removed due to redevelopment of the area. It was then re-commissioned at Marina Bay station.[4]
