Paya Lebar MRT Station (EW8/CC9) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) interchange station on the East West Line and the Circle Line in Singapore. It is the first station complex in Singapore that serves both an above ground line (East West) and an underground line (Circle). The travelling time from Bishan to Paya Lebar was shortened to around 13 minutes, starting 17 April 2010.[1] The livery of the East West Line and the Circle Line portions are green and orange respectively.

LocationEdit

Paya Lebar station is located near next to the Singapore Post centre. Due to its proximity to the centre, many of the employees there commute by train. It is just south of the urban planning area and town it serves, Paya Lebar. The station also serves the Geylang Serai district, the popular Geylang Serai Hawker centre, and the Malay Village. Therefore, it usually gets crowded during the Hari Raya period, as Muslims and other visitors flock to the festival bazaar.

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. Installation of Half-Height Platform Screen Doors was started on 28th October 2010 and started operations on Jan 11 2011.

The Circle Line side of this station has been equipped with Full-Height Platform Screen Doors since the operations started on 17 April 2010.

HistoryEdit

Paya Lebar originally opened on 4 November 1989 on the East West Line. On 17 April 2010, the Circle Line platforms opened.

2007 accidentEdit

On 4 April 2007, a man died after being hit by a train along the East West Line sector at about 10.20am. Police said the victim, a 52-year old Chinese, was pronounced dead by paramedics at 10.45am. East-bound services were disrupted from Aljunied MRT Station to Eunos MRT Station for 41 minutes but resumed by 11.02 am.

Current Station LayoutEdit

There are two links between the elevated East West Line station and the underground Circle Line station. The first link consists of a series of escalators to the Circle Line concourse from the western side of the East West platform. The second link, which have barrier-free will be made from the former Exit A which has been closed since late 2007 for reconstruction. Paya Lebar is also the only underground station in Singapore to have three rail tracks. During the morning and evening peak hours, certain trains heading in the direction of Dhoby Ghaut terminates its service at the middle platform and return to Marymount.
