Stevens station in Singapore

Due to space constraints, the two platforms at the station are seperated from each other and have their own faregates. A ten minute grace period was put in place by the Land Transport Authority in case passengers tap in at the wrong faregates.[5]

The Stevens station is located at the junction of Bukit Timah road and Stevens road, where the station takes its name from.
