Promenade MRT Station (CC4/DT15) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station in Singapore, located along Temasek Avenue, near the Millennia Walk shopping mall.[1] It is the fourth station along the counter-clockwise-bound Circle Line track. The station was opened on 17 April 2010 along with the rest of Stage 1 & 2 of the Circle Line. On 14 January 2012, Circle Line Extension was opened and this station became an interchange for the extension. On 22 December 2013, this station became an interchange with the Downtown Line.[2]

The Circle Line forks into two branches at this station – one branch towards the part of the Downtown Core southwest of the River towards Marina Bay via Bayfront with an expected extension towards HarbourFront to complete the circle and the other towards stations in the part of the Downtown Core northeast of the river (Dhoby Ghaut, Bras Basah and Esplanade).

With the construction of the Downtown Line platforms below the Circle Line platforms, this station becomes the deepest station in the entire Mass Rapid Transit network currently. Its deepest platform is located at basement 7 with the Downtown MRT Line side platform with trains bound for Bugis with a depth of 43 meters below ground.[3]

Art in Transit[edit]

The Circle Line part of the station features giant drips of disco balls suspended from the ceiling. This artwork is by :phunk and is titled "Dreams in a Social Cosmic Odyssey".[4]

The Downtown Line platforms of the station features an artwork that depicts the grounds of tiers of Singapore's history, culture, growth and development. It is "Earthcake" by Ana Prvacki.[5]
