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 opened on 31 January 2020, as part of Stage 1 of the line.[4]
