Despite its name, Clarke Quay station is not physically located within Clarke Quay which lies on the northern bank of the Singapore River. Rather, the station is built along the southern bank of the river, directly connected to The Central. The station is located on the opposite side of the Singapore River where Clarke Quay is actually situated. This MRT station is close to Fort Canning MRT station and Chinatown MRT station
Clarke Quay has several exits leading to the ground floor (Exit A, B and C). Exit E, F and G are all integrated into The Central building, whereas those crossing through the Singapore River are located at Exit C and Exit F, whereas the Eu Tong Sen Street area is covered by Exit E alone. Not all the exits are opened 24-hours.
The former Ellenborough Market was acquired in 1995 for the construction of Clarke Quay MRT station, including some HDB flats at Clarke Quay. Residents were told to move out by December 1996. These include Block 1 Tew Chew Street. North East Line Contract 708 was awarded to Nishimatsu Construction – Lum Chang Building Contractors – Bachy Soletanche Singapore Joint-Venture (JV) on 23 June 1997 for $171.2 million. Clarke Quay opened in 20 June 2003, and the construction of The Central, a shopping mall, also begun for completion in October 2006.
