Nicoll Highway MRT Station (CC5) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle Line in Kallang, Singapore.

Despite the name, the station is located under Republic Avenue, beside the Kallang Basin. The station is named after Nicoll Highway, a major road that connects the downtown to Kallang.

This is the last station before the Circle Line enters into downtown Singapore for trains traveling towards Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station or Marina Bay MRT Station.

History[edit]

Nicoll Highway collapse[edit]

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.[1]

Art in Transit[edit]

Khiew Huey Chian highlights wild plants frequently overlooked in Singapore using silhouettes of wild plants, resembling these with shapes to create slight contrast but harmony to the entire installation for this station's Art in Transit.
