Caldecott MRT Station (CC17/TS9) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line in Singapore. Unlike its namesake though, it is much closer to Lorong 1 Toa Payoh than Caldecott Hill and MediaCorp. It is situated on Toa Payoh Rise, a road on a hill that links Toa Payoh and Thomson estates which also forms the Toa Payoh West and Thomson sub-constituency of the Bishan-Toa Payoh Electoral Constituency. It is a 10-minute walk from Braddell.
When the Circle Line was initially planned, this station was planned to be a shell station and to be topped up and opened only when the surroundings were more developed. Eventually, sufficient developments in the area warranted its opening with the rest of Stage 4 of the line.
Art in Transit
The artwork featured in this station under the Art in Transit programme is The Cartography Of Memories by Hazel Lim, located on the lift shaft in the station. The artist gathered responses from some 100 members of the public about their memories of the places they've lived in, and used phrases and words from the responses to create a literal text map of the Thomson area, where the station is located.
