HistoryEdit

Originally named Maxwell during planning stages, the station was renamed to Tanjong Pagar in 1985. On 23 April 1984, the contractor, Takenaka-Tobishima Joint Venture had awarded the joint venture for the construction of Maxwell station and tunnels. The station's original name was re-used for a nearby station on the future Thomson-East Coast Line.

The station was expanded in 2004 to facilitate disabled access and the new Exit I was later opened. Currently the station is surrounded by the Tanjong Pagar Centre.

The faregates at this station were replaced in 12 October 2012 and the Exit I faregates were replaced on 20 August 2017.

ArtworkEdit

There is an artwork called Stainless Steel Mobiles by artist Anthony Poon hanging from the ceiling on the station as well as a polymarble mural by Aw Tee Hong called Epic of Singapore.
