The Choa Chu Kang MRT/LRT Station (NS4/BP1) is an interchange station serving the Choa Chu Kang area of Singapore. It is part of the North South MRT Line and it is also the terminus of the Bukit Panjang LRT Line. The station is accompanied by the Choa Chu Kang Bus Interchange and the Lot One Shoppers' Mall, which serves as a major shopping centre for residents living in Choa Chu Kang.

The Choa Chu Kang MRT/LRT Station is located in the southern and central part of Choa Chu Kang, on the northwest side of Singapore. The northern part of Choa Chu Kang is served by the next station, Yew Tee. The station mainly serves the town centre and the surrounding residential estates, which consist mostly of HDB heartlands, together with a few private housing. As the town continues to grow, passenger traffic at the station has become higher in recent years.

The MRT station was opened on 10 February 1990. It used to be the terminus of the Branch Line before 10 February 1996. With the opening of the Woodlands extension, trains can run directly from the station beyond Yishun, to Marina Bay, and hence the branch line was incorporated into the North South Line from then on. Terminating facilities for Marina Bay-bound trains are still present. The LRT station opened on 6 November 1999, on the opening day of the Bukit Panjang LRT line. The station would be the third one to have an Xchange after those in the underground Dhoby Ghaut and Raffles Place, making the station the first to have an Xchange above-ground and in a residential neighbourhood.

As with most of the above-ground stations along the North South Line, it was initially built without Platform Screen Doors to prevent commuters from falling onto the train tracks. After several successful tests at Jurong East, Yishun and Pasir Ris and that the previous station, Bukit Gombak has been equipped with operating half-height screen doors already, the station is expected to have these screen doors soon.

Notable Incidents Edit

2008 accidentEdit

SMRT said train services resumed at 8.52am.[1]
