Dakota MRT Station (CC8) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line in Singapore. The station is served by two exit and entry points. The station was opened on 17 April 2010 along with the rest of Stage 1 & 2 of the Circle Line.
The construction of Dakota and the tracks led to the closure of the stretch of Old Airport Road between Cassia Link and Guillemard Camp Road in March 2006. Instead, Jalan Tiga was extended to Guillemard Road, opening up a traffic junction there. In addition, the old Guillemard Camp Road was widened to provide public buses enough space to drive through. Despite the widening of the road, there have been several accidents occurring near the T-junction of Guillemard Road and Guillemard Camp Road. The closed stretch of Old Airport Road has since re-opened on 29 December 2008 at 5am.
It was built as part of stage 2 of the Circle Line by the same joint venture responsible for the Nicoll Highway station.
Built in the middle of a HDB estate and within walking distance of several schools, the station serves many residents in the area since its opening on 17 April 2010. Food enthusiasts living far away can also travel here to the legendary Old Airport Road Hawker Centre.
