I've done a quick search on the various orders made in relation to protected places/areas, trying to look for MRT stations being so called "gazetted", but have found none.
The only MRT related areas found gazetted are the MRT depots (bishan, changi, ulu pandan), and the MRT headquarters (operation command centre). Nothing about MRT stations.
And come to think of it, it would be quite weird for MRT stations to be gazetted as protected places, given that vast numbers go in and out and I don't even remember seeing any protected place sign there.
Of course, searches being searches, and given the vast number of orders out there relating to protected places (I see a total of around 200, I didn't bother to read each and every one; relying on the database to search instead.

AFAIK / IIRC, there used to be extremely long list of every single areas and buildings in Singapore that was assigned legal protective status (not the one for conservation purposes) under the Protected Areas And Protected Places Act, and with the related latitude and longitude coordinates.
It was a few hundred pages long in a (or multiple) .PDF document. But somehow, it's no longer there. I verbally recalled public beaches as one of them.

I no follow that list... but for protected areas (assuming MRT stations gazatted cuz they still have the right to search) does it mean they (the staffs) also have the right to tell you to stop taking photos?
"(2) Any person who is in any protected area shall comply with such directions for regulating his movement and conduct as may be given by an authorised officer, and an authorised officer may search any person entering, or seeking to enter, or being in, a protected area, and may detain any such person for the purpose of searching him."
