Nicoll Highway collapse
On April 20, 2004, a section of tunnel being built for the Circle Line collapsed, apparently when a retaining wall used in the tunnel's construction gave way. This occurred near what was to become the Nicoll Highway station on the Circle line, not far from the Merdeka Bridge.
The accident left a collapse zone 150 m wide, 100 m long, and 30 m deep. Four workers were killed, with three more injured and one body which was never recovered. The collapse has resulted the postponation of the completion of the Circle MRT Line Stage 1 from 2008 to 2010, April 17.
