Location

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

There are two exits and entry points to the station, one of which serves Shunfu Estate while the other is located near the western end of Raffles Institution. The station was opened on 28 May 2009 along with the rest of Stage 3 of the Circle Line due to the result of the Nicoll Highway collapse on 20 April 2004.[1]

History[edit]

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.
