History[edit]

Date Event
20 December 1988 Station officially opened
18 May 2019 - 19 May 2019 Station (towards Jurong East) closed due to the construction of Canberra station[1]
20 May 2019 Station closed due to the construction of Canberra station[1]

Bomb plot[edit]

On 22 December 2001, the Singapore embassies attack plot was discovered, and had included plans to bomb this station at several points, including the sewers near the station. This was brought up in a debate during a session of the parliament, during which new security measures were proposed, especially on the MRT system itself.[2]

2006 incident[edit]

On the early morning of 5 December 2006, a foreign worker in his early twenties, was hit by a southbound train at the station and caused trains from Sembawang to Yio Chu Kang stations to be disrupted for more than an hour. He was later pronounced dead.[3] In February 2007 a leaked CCTV footage of the incident along with another at Admiralty station began circulating on the internet, with the man in question crawling from under the platform and onto the track as the train approaches,[4] leading to suggestions that it was a case of suicide.

2008 bomb hoax[edit]

On 19 January 2008 at about 3.30pm, a call was made from a public telephone at the MRT Station alleging that there was a bomb at the station.[5] Police arrested a 31-year old Chinese man believed to be linked to the crime on 23 February that year at 4pm. The man was charged for transmitting a false message that makes reference to a bomb.[6]

2008 incident[edit]

At 11.45am on 11 October that year, a man was found on the tracks of the station and was sent to hospital. Train service was disrupted in between Sembawang and Yio Chu Kang stations. Regular service resumed at 12.16pm.
