Location

Kaki Bukit MRT station (DT28) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Downtown Line in Bedok planning area, Singapore, located along Kaki Bukit Avenue 1, near the junction with Jalan Damai. The station serves both the industrial and residential areas in the Kaki Bukit district.

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

History[edit]

Prior to the construction of the station, there were several names used for the station, including the current name, Kaki Bukit and the name San Andreas.

Kaki Bukit Avenue 1 was closed from August 2011 to 23 April 2016 to facilitate the construction of the station. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) 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. Bus 585 continued to travel along Jalan Tenaga and Jalan Damai.[1]

The station opened on 21 October 2017, as announced by the Land Transport Authority on 31 May 2017.[2]
