Woodlands MRT station (NS9/TE2) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line in Woodlands, Singapore. It is located next to the Woodlands Temporary Bus Interchange and Causeway Point. The station will become an interchange station with the Thomson-East Coast Line by January 2020.[1]

History[change | change source]

In 1990, the government of Singapore said that the North South Line will be extended to connect the already-opened Choa Chu Kang and Yishun stations. The station opened on 10 February 1996 as part of this extension. The section on the Thomson–East Coast Line will open in 2020, as part of Stage 1 of the line.[2]
