Labrador Park Station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort. A set of escalators, stairs and a lift connects the platform level to the concourse level one floor above. The concourse wraps around the platform, creating a large interior space which gives the station a spacious feel.

Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.

Art in Transit: “Without Which/ Would Have Been/ Impossible” by Heman Chong

This artwork explores the notion of balance between different forms of living things, each dependent on each other in an intricate manner. Labrador Park is a representation of this commitment to achieve balance between urban development and the natural world, ensuring an ecological future for Singapore. Chong’s work consists of two elements. The main motif is generated out of a microscopic view of a single rock found at the park, highlighting the distinctive identity of Labrador Park as the last surviving rocky sea cliff in Singapore. The second element, WITHOUT WHICH/ WOULD HAVE BEEN/ IMPOSSIBLE is inspired by one of literature’s most minimal forms – haiku. The often reference of haiku to nature complements the elementary object in this work. Developed as a monument, the artwork invites commuters to reflect in fundamental concepts, discovering the interconnectivity and deeper understanding in them.
