Pasir Panjang MRT
All About the Pasir Panjang MRT station
Pasir Panjang MRT station (CC26), once known for its opium trade, has transformed dramatically. The majority of the coastline region along reclaim Pasir Panjang for ports and containers since the late 1960s. The Pasir Panjang Food Center, located right outside the railway station, is well-known for its fresh seafood due to its proximity to the water. Reflections at Bukit Chandu, a wartime museum in Kent Ridge Park, join Fort Siloso on Sentosa and The Battle Box on Fort Canning in commemorating Singapore’s past through artifacts and documents.
It is beneath Pasir Panjang Road, between the Pasir Panjang Food Court and the Mint. Pasir Panjang, which translates to “long sand” in Malay, refers to the long sandy beaches that ran down the coast. Since then, reclaiming the ground for the Pasir Panjang port, the region is now home to private houses, condominiums, and commercial buildings serviced by this station.
The two platforms of Pasir Panjang Station are designed in an island platform arrangement. 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 extends around the platform, producing an enormous interior area with an open sense. The passenger information systems are on plasma panels at each station and provide train arrival times and critical notifications. The tactile floor guides visually challenged passengers from the platform to the Pasir Panjang MRT station exits.
The Concourse on Basement 1 includes automatic fare collecting entrance doors and allows access between the toll and non-toll portions of the station, including at least one two-way swing door for passengers in wheelchairs, those carrying bulky objects, or those traveling with strollers. 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.
Lieutenant Adnan Saidi was a 27-year-old army officer whose daring and ultimate sacrifice in one of Singapore’s bloodiest battles made him legendary. During World War II, the Battle of Pasir Panjang was against the Japanese. Set near the battlefield, this piece of art praises this war hero’s battling spirit in the style of an imagined film, featuring him in the fictional role of familiar real-life action actor Aaron Aziz.
The artwork is of three picture series: a vertical centerpiece in the elevator shaft, a diptych at either end of the platform, and a quartet of images in the hall at the control station. The middle vertical work is composed of film stills that sequentially rebuild heroic action, while the platform diptych depicts Lieutenant Adnan’s life narrative. Finally, the competition quartet tells a fight in the traditional form of Western “historical pictures.” These three photos invite visitors to actively recreate the artwork by exploring the station space and learning about Singapore’s history.
