Serangoon MRT Station (NE12/CC13) is an underground interchange station on the North East Line and the Circle Line in Singapore. The station is located in the Serangoon Central area, at the intersection of Upper Serangoon Road and Serangoon Central. This station sees relatively heavy usage during peak periods, because a number of bus services which used to go to the city area now terminate at Serangoon bus interchange instead. The station is operated by SBS Transit on the North East Line and SMRT Corporation on the Circle Line.

HistoryEdit

Before the station opened, the Singapore Civil Defence Force conducted the second ever Shelter Open House on 15-16 February 2003, together with Chinatown, Farrer Park and Hougang stations.

Train disruption on 2004Edit

250 train passengers were trapped in trains on 8 February 2004 from 11.22 am to 11.41 am when the power was disrupted at Serangoon MRT station, causing all stations from Serangoon to Punggol to be closed during the disruption. Template:Citation needed

Station sinking incidentEdit

In February 2005, excavation for the tunnels under the existing North East Line station for the Circle Line interchange station hit an unusually large body of groundwater. This caused settlement of the North East Line station as well as the Serangoon viaduct directly above the station, with the station sinking by 1 cm. As a result, trains bound for Punggol pulling off the station have to pass by the affected area at a lower speed.[1][2] By the first few months of 2007, train speeds started picking up once again after the excavation was near completion.

Circle LineEdit

The Circle Line portion of the station opened on 28 May 2009.[3] This is the second station in the MRT system after Dhoby Ghaut to have a travelator within the paid-area of the station, which is 73 metres in length, about 20 metres longer than the one at Dhoby Ghaut. As of 2010 January 28, an integrated development, comprising of the nex shopping mall and a bus interchange, is being constructed on the site directly above the Circle Line part of this station.[4][5][6]

Train disruption in 2010Edit

Train service on the North East Line (NEL) was temporarily disrupted for about 26 minutes between Serangoon and Hougang stations at around 8.25am on 21 April 2010 due to technical problems with the signalling and the communication systems. [7]

Station layout and designEdit

The artwork in the North East Line side of the station under the Art in Transit programme is Memories of Childhood by Eng Joo Heng. The artwork featured in the Circle Line side is called View of Life by Sarkasi Said. The author used 18 original batik paintings on cloth which were photographed and printed onto a sheet of glass.
