Located along Upper Paya Lebar Road, Tai Seng station was named after and primarily serves the industrial clusters at Tai Seng, which in turn means ‘big accomplishment’ in Chinese. The name was first used on a rubber factory constructed in the area in 1917.
The Upper Paya Lebar Road was realigned from Tai Seng Link to Jalan Bunga Rampai on 14 April 2003 for the construction of the station. The station was completed in November 2007.
Before the station was built, it was tentatively named Upper Paya Lebar. It was renamed to Tai Seng to reflect the location of the area.
The station was opened on 17 April 2010 along with the rest of Stage 1 & 2 of the Circle Line.
On May 16, 2017, it was announced that Tai Seng MRT station on the Circle Line will soon be linked by an underground walkway to the bustling Paya Lebar industrial and commercial hub on the other side of the road. The station is the only station on the eastern stretch of the line that does not have an underground link to the other side. Work started in March 2015 and is expected to be completed in the second half of this year. There will be an escalator and a lift for pedestrians' use.
