Overhead MRT stations: an Engineering oversight?

Recently, it seems to me that MRT trains are getting noiser as they enter or exit overhead MRT train platforms. Overhead MRT train platforms were among the first batch of MRT train platforms constructed; subsequently new train stations like the Thomson MRT line are all hidden underground.

I believe overhead MRT train platforms is an Engineering oversight. By building a MRT above ground, precious land in land-scare Singapore is utilized; also noise pollution from train entering/exiting the platform annoy residents and citizens living or working near these train stations.
