Singapore Platform Screen DoorsEdit

The Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) was the first rapid transit system in Asia to incorporate platform screen doors in its stations in 1987. Full height platform screen doors are installed at all existing underground MRT stations in Singapore and all future underground MRT stations. Half height platform screen doors will be retrofitted into all existing elevated MRT stations by 2012 (starting with three elevated MRT stations by 2009), as well as all future elevated MRT stations.

There are two series of the full height platform screen doors in use. The first series was installed at all underground stations along the North South Line and the East West Line from 1987 to the completion of the initial system in 1990.
The second series of platform screen doors sporting a sleeker design, producing less sound when the doors were opened and closed, and incorporating more glass were installed in the Changi Airport MRT Station which opened in 2002. All stations in the fully-underground North East Line, which opened in 2003, also sport these new doors. The upcoming MRT Line, the Circle Line will also feature second-generation platform screen doors on all of its stations. These doors were also installed on the North South Line platform in the Bishan MRT Station.
Considered a novelty at the time of its installation, it was introduced primarily to minimise hefty air-conditioning costs, especially since elevated stations are not air-conditioned, and hence are much more economical to run in comparison. Since then the safety aspects of these doors have become more important, as highlighted by a series of high profile incidents where individuals were injured or killed by oncoming trains since the year 2002, all occurring on elevated stations where no screen doors exist. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) reports that there have been more than 220 cases of commuters trespassing on the tracks between 1991 and 15 September 2004, of which 87 percent were deliberate acts of trespass. Nine fatalities were recorded during this period, of which only one was an accident. Since September 2004 there have been six fatalities occurring on elevated MRT and LRT stations.
