Contracts director, Gerald Loe of Rainbow Construction, explains that the new station will be a sleek double-storey building, ensuring controlled access for commuters, with travellers not being able to access the platforms from the ground floor. ''To ensure optimal safety, commuters will enter the station via the first floor, buy their ticket and use this to go through the turnstiles and proceed down to the ground floor and the platforms, ensuring only people who are actually travelling have access to the platforms.''
