Marsiling MRT Station (NS8) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the North South Line in Singapore. The station is located west of Woodlands.


The government came up with a proposal to build the North South Line Woodlands Extension in 1990 with the aim of extending the then existing North-South and East-West lines, thus connecting Choa Chu Kang in the West to Yishun in the North. Marsiling was one of the four stations in the initial proposal which was later expanded to six. Construction commenced in 1991 and the station was opened on 10 February 1996 along with the other five stations on the Woodlands Extension.[1]

Following numerous incidents of commuters falling on the tracks and unauthorized intrusions, the Land Transport Authority made the decision in 2008 to install half-height platform screen doors (HHPSD) for all above-ground stations in phases. HHPSDs started operation from 22 December 2011 with Admiralty.[2]

Due to the station's proximity to neighbouring Housing and Development Board apartment blocks, a privacy screen was built along the tracks at the side of the station (southbound platform) facing these apartment blocks for privacy.[citation needed]

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

Station installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and commenced operations on 21 November 2012.
