Location

Marymount MRT station (CC16) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the Circle Line in Bishan, Singapore.

Located underneath the traffic junction of Marymount Road, Marymount Lane and Bishan Street 21, this station provides MRT access to residents living in the western part of Bishan New Town, as well as students and staff of the nearby Raffles Institution.

History[edit]

On 10 February 2004, Marymount Road was temporarily closed for realignment works. The options for station names are - 'Marymount' and 'Shunfu', in the end Marymount was chosen.

This station was a terminus for the Circle Line until the opening of the HarbourFront portion of the Circle Line on 8 October 2011. Before the future Upper Thomson opens in 2020, this station is the nearest MRT station within the Thomson area.

Art in Transit[edit]

In this station's Art in Transit, Joshua Yang's artwork Superstring consists of individual pieces constructed with only one continuous line that winds around itself to let the viewer explore real and virtual spaces.
