Boon Lay MRT Station (EW27) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line located at Jurong West Central.

The station currently serves residents living in Jurong West Neighbourhoods 2, 6, 7 and 8 and people working in the Jurong Industrial Estate.

In addition, it serves people who travels to the Nanyang Technological University via bus services 179 or 199 and tourists going to Jurong Bird Park via bus services 194 or 251, as all these bus services originates from Boon Lay Bus Interchange.

Together with Boon Lay Bus Interchange and Jurong Point Shopping Mall, it is part of the Boon Lay Integrated Public Transport Hub.

HistoryEdit

The station was opened on 6 July 1990. On the day of opening, a ceremony was held at the station to mark the completion of the initial MRT network.

This station was built to serve residents living in the then-undeveloped Jurong West New Town and people working in the then mostly-undeveloped Tuas and Jurong Industrial Estate. These areas have since become more developed and the passenger volume has increased, leading to much congestion at this station during peak hours.

However, the condition was improved when the Boon Lay MRT extension was constructed and commenced service on 28 February 2009 with an addition of Pioneer MRT Station and Joo Koon MRT Station. With Pioneer MRT Station serving the western portion of Jurong West New Town and Pioneer Sector, and Joo Koon MRT Station serving Joo Koon, Tuas and Tuas South, Boon Lay MRT station now serves only the eastern portion of Jurong West New Town and the Jurong Industrial Estate and ceased to be the western terminal of the East West Line.

EtymologyEdit

This station was named after Boon Lay Way, the street along the station, although Boon Lay Place is located about 1 kilometre away.

2010 incidentEdit

On 12 August 2010, a 20-year-old autistic male was found sitting on the tracks in Boon Lay MRT station Westbound track. A commuter saw this and pressed the emergency stop plunger and soon the MRT staff arrived on the scene. They shouted to him to return to the platform but instead he started running towards Lakeside MRT station. This resulted in the MRT staff giving chase, and this incident disrupted Joo Koon bound service for 10 minutes. He was later escorted by the MRT staff back to the station and arrested by the police, who will charge him for attempted suicide.
