Location

Marina Bay MRT Station (NS27/CE2/TE20) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the North South Line and Circle Line in Singapore. It was the southern terminus of the former until late November 2014. The Circle Line station was awarded the winner of Small Project Award at the World Architecture Festival in 2012.[1]

When the Thomson-East Coast Line side of the station opens in 2021, Marina Bay will be a triple-line interchange station, similar to Dhoby Ghaut and Outram Park.

History[edit]

The station is located on a reclaimed land with no developed infrastructure surrounding it, and hence contrary to what the name implies, there exists a slight distance between the actual town of Marina Bay and the station. This station is now used for locals to travel from other parts of Singapore and connects passengers to a bus service that brings them to a nearby recreational area.

On 8 January 2006, this station was one of the four stations that participated in Exercise Northstar V.

Since the opening of the Circle Line platforms, this station is the first underground station in the Singapore MRT to have its platform above the concourse level.
