Farrer Road MRT Station (CC20) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line situated along its namesake Farrer Road, at the boundary of Bukit Timah and Tanglin planning areas, Singapore.
On May 24, 2007, a section of Cornwall Gardens Road above a section between Holland Village and Farrer Road stations along the Circle Line collapsed, creating a 3 metre deep hole. No one was injured, but some of the households lost their access to cable TV and Internet, as well as the water supply. This is the third road that caved in during the construction of the Circle Line.
Art in Transit
The artwork featured in this station under the Art in Transit programme is Art Lineage by Erzan Adam. In this community project, using lines as a key element to emphasise unity in art and in the community, members of the public were invited to paint coloured lines in any way they liked over three canvasses. The artist then digitised and overlayered the images to create a single piece, which is now displayed on the lift shaft in the station.
