Soil near station sinksEdit
Nearby Marina Boulevard had to be temporarily closed and traffic was diverted on the morning of June 18, 2008 after soil on a construction site next to the road sank. No one was injured. Vehicles coming from Collyer Quay and Finlayson Green were diverted to Raffles Quay.
Urban Redevelopment Authority said the hole measured 5 metres wide and was 2.5 metres deep. It sank at about 9.10am. This caused a hole next to the Marina Boulevard slip road leading towards East Coast Parkway.
URA said the soil subsidence is located within the construction site where construction works for the common services tunnel is being carried out.
