DOVER MRT
STATION OPENS
With growing demand for connectivity and convenience, our train lines gradually expanded around the island. By October 2001, Singapore Polytechnic students and residents of Dover finally got their MRT station. Opened by Transport Minister Yeo Cheow Tong, the Dover MRT station sits along the East-West Line between Buona Vista and Clementi MRT stations and was the first to be built on an operational track. During the construction stage, trains had to drive by the site at reduced speed. The station also became the first elevated station in Singapore with platforms on both sides of the train tracks, as others were built with an island platform.
