Pasir Ris MRT Station is the eastern terminal station of the East West Line in Singapore. The station is located at the central part of Pasir Ris New Town.

HistoryEdit

Pasir Ris MRT Station was one of the many above ground stations built in the past with no platform screen doors to prevent commuters from falling off the platform and onto the train tracks. However, on 13 August 2009, Pasir Ris MRT Station became the first above ground MRT Station in Singapore to begin installing half height platform screen doors.[1] On 1 November 2009, the platform screen doors were fully completed and started operations.[2]

Train service at Pasir Ris was delayed twice during morning peak hours on March 8, 2012 due to signalling faults on the track near the station. SMRT said the first delay happened at 7.06 am and lasted for about 14 minutes. It said commuters were informed of the delay through announcements and notices at the station, as well as Twitter. SMRT staff were on-site to rectify the track fault immediately. Some trains were turned around at Tanah Merah and Tampines to maintain westbound service on the unaffected stretch between Tampines and Joo Koon. The fault was fixed at about 7.20 am. But it recurred at about 8.20 am and was rectified at 8.50 am.[3]

Pasir Ris was the first eastern terminus station of the East West Line, installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and have been operating since 9 July 2012 together with Simei.

SMRT train services on the East West Line were delayed for more than an hour on the evening of 14 October 2012 due to a train fault. Tweets from SMRT also showed that services were especially affected between Tampines and Pasir Ris, and the public was initially asked to seek alternative transport. SMRT later arranged for buses to transport commuters, before it said services from Tampines to Pasir Ris resumed at around 11.30pm.[4]

On 22 March 2016, 2 SMRT maintenance trainees were killed after being run over by a terminating C151 train reportedly travelling at about 60 km/h at around 11:10am. They were part of a group of 15 personnel tasked to investigate a possible signalling system fault near the tracks of Pasir Ris Station. The incident took place 150m away from the station. This led to a 2.5 hour train service disruption between 11:10am to 1:56pm from Pasir Ris and Tanah Merah, and had affected at least 10,000 commuters.[5][6]
