Lorong Chuan MRT Station (CC14) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle MRT Line in Singapore. It is located at the western end of Serangoon Avenue 3, between Chuan Park and Springbloom condominiums. The station serves the neighbouring Nanyang Junior College, St. Gabriel's Primary School, Australian International School, New Tech Park and the private estates and condominiums along Serangoon Avenue 3. There are 2 main exit and entry points to the station, built under stage 3 of the Circle Line which has been operational since 28 May 2009.

HistoryEdit

The station opened first on 28 May 2009 along with the rest of Stage 3 of the Circle Line [1] due to the result of Nicoll Highway collapse on 20 April 2004. Before the station opened, Singapore Civil Defence Force conducted the third Shelter Open House at this station on April 4, 2009, together with Bartley and Bishan stations. The LTA also organised a Circle Line Discovery open house on May 23, 2009 on all stations of the Stage 3 of the Circle Line.

ControversyEdit

In June 2003, Singapore Land Authority (SLA) offered Chuan Park (a 99-year leasehold condo near the site of the station) residents S$1 for 220 sq m of land, which comprised mainly car park lots. The land was necessary to build the Circle MRT Line. The 99-year leasehold condominium at Lorong Chuan, off Serangoon Avenue 3, has 446 units, so the compensation works out to just 0.2 cents a household. Outraged residents say the amount was too 'ridiculous' to even consider. Eventually, the car park was rebuilt and returned to Chuan Park.

Current Station LayoutEdit

At this station, Yoma and A Dose of Light designed a hand-drawn artwork depicting the entire island of Singapore as well as the sea-faring activities.
