Punggol MRT/LRT Station (NE17/PTC) is an interchange station of the North East Line and the Punggol LRT Line in Singapore.[1] The artwork in this station is Water, Landscape and Future by Goh Beng Kwan.[2]

History[edit]

The station was to have been unopened with Potong Pasir, Buangkok and Woodleigh MRT stations when the government gave the go ahead to build the North East Line in 1996 as Punggol 21 was still undeveloped then. But as more developments of Punggol 21 were progressively unveiled, the station was opened with the rest of the line in 2003. In 2005, a middle platform was built on the LRT Platform for services to Punggol North but plans for that were aborted and the platform was replaced with walkways.
