Thomson–East Coast Line
Thomson–East Coast Line
|Address|| 400 Upper Serangoon Road|
|Line(s)||North East Line|
|20 June 2011||Station officially opens|
When the North East Line opened, it was one of the 2 completed MRT stations in the entire system that was non-operational, the other being Buangkok which opened in early 2006 prior to the opening of the Circle Line. It was closed for 8 years because of low development in the vicinity. Part of the station's interior was shown on an episode of Building the Biggest on Discovery Channel.
It was estimated that if the station was opened, its daily ridership would be under the 2,000 general benchmark deemed necessary for a station to make economic sense to operate. However, on 8 March 2011, SBS Transit announced the opening of the station on 20 June 2011.
On the eve of the grand opening, maintenance on the lifts, escalators and fare gates was conducted and the platform was polished. The station was officially opened on 20 June 2011 by Minister for Transport, Mr Lui Tuck Yew to celebrate the 8th anniversary of the opening of the North East Line in 2003.
On April 18 2017, Woodleigh station was closed for about three hours after a suspicious substance was found in various areas in the station. At 1.49pm, SBS Transit announced that all trains will skip Woodleigh station due to a "security incident". The station subsequently reopened at 4.20 pm after police established the substance to be baking flour.
A 69-year-old man has been arrested for causing public alarm. Two other men, aged 53 and 70, are assisting police with investigations. This was the second security incident in more than two weeks after Hougang station was temporarily shut down on April 2 2017. Preliminary investigations show that the trio were helping to mark a hashing trail before a run organised by the Selatar Hash House Harriers took place.
