The Dover MRT Station (EW22) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station located in Dover in Singapore that is part of the East West Line. The station is located between the Clementi MRT Station and the Buona Vista MRT Station, and was opened on October 18, 2001 with test runs from October 13, 2001 to October 17, 2001 when the trains stopped at the station but did not open their doors. It was the first station to be built over an operating rail line with no disruptions to train services, with the exception that trains drove by the site at a reduced speed during the construction phase, and the first elevated station in Singapore with two side platforms on either side of the tracks, as opposed to having an island platform in all other elevated MRT stations.

Adjacent to the Singapore Polytechnic on one side, and undeveloped land on the other, the building of the station was met with reservations by some members of the public over the small area it serviced. There were criticisms over the spending of "taxpayers' money" chiefly for use only by students of one educational institution.[1] The Land Transport Authority, the government department in charge of public transport operations, proceeded with the construction anyway, using the justification that the service area extends to public housing flats on either end of the polytechnic, and that the undeveloped land opposite is slated for extensive development, largely residential in nature. The service area can also be thought to extend to the town of Dover.

As the second elevated station built in the late 1990s and the early 2000s (the other being Expo), it has a rather distinctive architectural design. like most projects in this period, it has an extensive use of glass and steel as well as the use of suspension.

Platform Screen DoorsEdit

As with most of the above-ground 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 tests at Jurong East, Yishun and Pasir Ris and that the previous station, Clementi has been equipped with operating half-height screen doors already, the station is expected to have these screen doors soon.
