Woodlands MRT Station (NS9/TE2) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit train station on the North South Line in Singapore. It is integrated with the Woodlands Regional Bus Interchange located beneath the station. The station is located in Woodlands. In 2019, Woodlands will be an interchange station with a new line, Thomson-East Coast Line.
The government came up with a proposal to build the North South Line Woodlands Extension in 1990 with the aim of extending the existing North-South Line, thus connecting Choa Chu Kang in the northwest to Yishun in the North. Woodlands was one of four stations in the initial proposal which was later expanded to six. Construction commenced in 1991 and the station was opened on 10 February 1996 along with the other five stations on the Woodlands Extension.
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. Installation began from 17 September 2011 and began operation from 30 November 2011.
On 4 November 2013, it is the first MRT station to be awarded with the Building and Construction Authority’s Green Mark (Gold) and tenants of Woodlands Xchange have become the first shop owners in Singapore to be certified with the Project: Eco-Shop label.
A 15 metres (49 ft) high sculpture called Faces II weighing 4,000 kilograms (8,800 lb), designed by Singaporean artist Min Chen, was on display at the station.
High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans
Station installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and commenced operations on 6 November 2012.
