Location

Bartley MRT station (CC12) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the Circle Line, located on the boundary of Serangoon and Hougang planning areas, Singapore.

Situated along Bartley Road, this station serves the residential estate along Serangoon Avenue 1 and the upcoming Bidadari estate.

History[edit]

This station is being built in tandem with the Outer Ring Road System project which consists of extending Bartley Road to Eunos Road via a viaduct over the part of the underground site of the Kim Chuan Depot. On 13 August 2003, the section of Bartley Road was realigned for the construction of the station. On 16 September 2004, Bartley Road was realigned again.

As part of the project, Upper Paya Lebar Road was rebuilt and opened on 17 January 2010 as an underpass heading towards MacPherson and Paya Lebar. The station opened first on 28 May 2009 along with the rest of Stage 3 of the Circle Line due to the result of Nicoll Highway collapse on 20 April 2004.[1]

Before the station opened, Singapore Civil Defence Force conducted the third Shelter Open House at this station on 4 April 2009, together with Bishan and Lorong Chuan stations. It also held an open house for the SMRT staff on 1 May. This station was a terminal for the Circle Line until the line was extended to Dhoby Ghaut on 17 April 2010.

Art in Transit[edit]

The art piece at this station, which called The Coin Mat, consists of a mural made-up of 160,000 one-cent coins embedded in glass, done by Jane Lee.
