When the Circle line was planned, this station was planned to be an empty station, to be opened only when the area are more developed. It was only announced quite later that this station will open other stations of Stage 4 on 11 January 2007, and the station name was renamed to "Caldecott".[1] The station opened on 8 October 2011.

Starting from 2021, Caldecott station became an interchange station with the Thomson–East Coast line and serves as the terminus from 2021 to 2022, where it would be replaced by Gardens by the Bay as the Stage 3 of the line opens.[2]
