It was first announced on 11 January 2011 by Transport Minister Mr Raymond Lim in a speech while visiting Bedok when new platform screen doors opened there. It was expected to be completed by 2016 and would benefit an estimated 100,000 commuters daily.

The opening of the station was delayed from 2016 to the second quarter of 2017 to make way for the installation of the new signalling system. It entered operations on 18 June 2017. Cash top-ups at passenger service centres will no longer be accepted from 1 January 2018. [1][2]

Stations between Gul Circle to Tuas Link were temporary closed between 16 and 19 November 2017 following collision incident happened between Joo Koon and Gul Circle. On 20 November 2017, train service from Gul Circle to Tuas Link was resumed; however, train services between Joo Koon and Gul Circle will be suspended till mid-2018 to facilitate maintenance work on signalling devices.[3][4][5][6][7][8]
