Haw Par Villa MRT
Complete Guide on the Haw Par Villa MRT
Haw Par Villa MRT Station (CC25) is a subway station located on the boundary of Pasir Panjang 1 and Port Planning sub-areas on Stage 5 of the Circle Line (CCL). It is near Haw Par Villa (or Tiger Balm Gardens), the oriental-style amusement park for which the station is named, and is underneath the West Coast Highway and Pasir Panjang Road. Haw Par Villa MRT was erected in 1937 and was previously privately owned. The grounds of the garden, known for its sculptures portraying scenes from Chinese mythology, were bought by the government in the late 1980s and then leased to various private enterprises for development and administration as a commercial theme park and later as the neighborhood’s highlight attraction.
The Pasir Panjang Terminal Building, which serves as a port operator and is in charge of cargo processing at the terminal, is nearby. Haw Par Villa is a theme park in and of itself, with several massive statues and dioramas depicting Chinese mythology and folklore. It is a fantastic location to learn more about Chinese mythology and Confucian beliefs. West Coast Plaza and Harbourfront Vivo City, both within walking distance, may meet your dining and entertainment needs.
The island platform configuration at Haw Par Villa MRT station includes two platforms. The air-conditioned station is isolated from the subway environment by full-height platform screen doors, boosting passenger safety and station comfort. The platform level is linked to the waiting level one story above through escalators, stairs, and an elevator.
The Concourse on Basement 1 includes automatic fare collecting entrance doors and connects the toll and non-toll portions of the station, with at least one two-way swing door for the convenience of passengers with wheelchairs, those traveling enormous objects, or those traveling with baby carriages. General ticket machines sell single and multi-journey tickets, contactless card transactions, and refill machines. The station office serves as the Passenger Service Center, where travelers may make travel queries.
Passenger Utilization Pattern:
The Haw Par Villa station, which serves a small theme park, residential neighborhoods, and a few industrial complexes, has low to moderate passenger demand for many of the day. Commuters to and from the West Coast, Pasir Panjang, NUS Business School, and Singapore Science Park II use the station to transition between the rail network and various bus services.
Circle Line Phase 5 (CCL5) Contract C856 was awarded to Sembawang Engineers and Constructors Pte Ltd for the West Coast, Alexandra, Pasir Panjang, Telok Blangah, and HarbourFront stations and accompanying tunnels. The west coast station was the Haw Par Villa Station. The station ultimately opened, along with the rest of the Circle Line Stage 5 stops.
Rail Bridge Services:
Rail Bridge Services will be available in the case of an MRT service interruption impacting Haw Par Villa Station. Failed shuttle buses, often known as the MRT, can be activated to run affected portions of the Circle Line.
