When the MRT network commenced operations in 1987, Queenstown as with all above-ground stations had no physical barriers between the platforms and tracks. Following numerous incidents of commuters falling on the tracks and unauthorized intrusions, the Land Transport Authority made the decision in 2008 to install half height platform screen doors for all above-ground stations in phases. The screen doors have been installed in January 2011 and started operations on 28 April 2011 together with Commonwealth.
This station was installed with MJ Air Tech High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Pro-Jet fans and have been operational since 11 September 2012 together with Eunos.
