Location

Aljunied MRT Station (EW9) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore. It serves the urban neighbourhood of Aljunied. Its livery is blue.

History[edit]

From the start, Aljunied had no physical barriers between the platforms and tracks. In view of many incidents over the years, the Land Transport Authority made the decision in 2008 to install half height platform screen doors for all above-ground stations in phases which is operational on 11 February 2011.[1]

High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans[edit]

Station installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and began operating on 27 July 2012.
