Chinese Garden MRT Station (EW25) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore. It serves residents in Jurong East Neighbourhoods 2 and 3 and also the nearby Chinese Garden, which the station derives its name from.

The colour scheme of the station is mostly brown, red and green. It is similar to the colour used in the interior of classical Chinese buildings.

Platform Screen DoorsEdit

As with most of the stations along the East West Line, it was initially built without Platform Screen Doors to prevent commuters from falling onto the train tracks. After several successful test at Jurong East, Yishun and Pasir Ris and eventually, installation of the half-height screen doors started on 14 August 2010 and operations commenced on 1 October 2010.

2006 accidentEdit

In the evening of 18 October 2006, Tan Jee Suan, 46, was killed at the MRT station after being hit by a train going towards Boon Lay. The victim had reportedly flung himself onto the train tracks and was suspected of committing suicide, aggravated by poverty. He had died with little more than ten dollars in his pocket. Train services towards Jurong East were disrupted. Upon hearing about the plight of the victim's family, the public donated money to the widow which amounted to more than S$500,000 by the fourth day of the wake.[1][2]

This accident is also made unusually significant by the Wee Shu Min elitism scandal.
