Location

Kaki Bukit MRT Station (DT28) is a future underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Downtown Line in Bedok planning area, Singapore. The station will serve both the industrial and residential areas in the Kaki Bukit district once completed in 2017.

This station will provide an alternative to Eunos and Bedok stations on the East West Line.

History[edit]

Kaki Bukit Avenue 1 is closed from August 2011 to 23 April 2016 to facilitate the construction of the station. To facilitate diverted traffic, LTA has widened the adjacent roads Jalan Tenaga and Jalan Damai by one lane in each direction. On 24 April 2016, selected bus routes such as 5, 15, 58, 59 and 87 were diverted to ply the reopened stretch of Kaki Bukit Avenue 1. 585 continued to travel along Jalan Tenaga and Jalan Damai.[1]

Vicinity[edit]

When the station opens in 2017 along with the rest of the Downtown Line Stage 3 stations, it will benefit the residents who are living along Jalan Damai, Kaki Bukit Avenue 1, Jalan Tenaga as well as the Bedok Reservoir Road. Students from the nearby Bedok North Secondary School will also enjoy the convenience of accessing to this station as both institutions are situated within a comfortable short walking distance to the station.
