HistoryEdit

The station was built in 1995, together with the other stations of the North South Line Woodlands Extension. The two-storey station building, with a simple facade and a kampung-style roof, was officially opened on 10 February 1996. During the construction of the Woodlands extension, land between the Yew Tee and Kranji MRT stations was acquired. Measuring a total of 18,685 m sq, affecting a total of 16 factories operating along the stretch.[1]

Following numerous incidents of commuters falling on the tracks and unauthorized intrusions, the Land Transport Authority made the decision in 2008 to install half height platform screen doors for all above-ground stations in phases.[2]The platform screen doors started operations at this station on 1 February 2012.

This station was installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and commenced operations on 27 November 2012 together with Kranji.

Yew Tee acts as a train terminus from 2001 to 27 December 2011, when it was extended to Marsiling for the short-working trip.
