Buona Vista MRT Station is a Mass Rapid Transit station located in the town of Buona Vista in Singapore, that is part of the East West Line and the Circle Line, and served as an interchange station between the two lines. It is the second station in Singapore (after Paya Lebar) that serves both an above-ground line (East West Line) and an underground line (Circle Line).

HistoryEdit

Following the 25 March 2006 accident, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) made the decision in 2008 to install platform screen doors in this station, whereby operations commenced in 10 June 2011.[1]

The lifts were upgraded in August 2009 and had been the last station to be barrier-free, due to complexities within the station. Buona Vista MRT station is the first elevated station to serve as an interchange between MRT lines. The station is fitted with MJ Air Tech High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Pro-Jet fans, which commenced operations on 25 June 2012, the same day as the fans at Commonwealth.

Art in TransitEdit

The artwork featured under the Art in Transit programme is The Tree of Life by Gilles Massot. Located on the lift shaft in the underground station, the artwork depicts a picture of an eucalyptus tree located at the nearby Kent Ridge Park that has been digitally edited to create an effect similar to David Hockney's photo montages.[2] The tree also represents the jungle greenery which used to exist next to the above-ground station and is a result of the deep impression left on the artist of the landscape and view of the area.
