Newton MRT Station (NS21/DT11) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the North South Line and the Downtown Line in Singapore. It is located along Scotts Road and is an underground station. It is the shallowest underground MRT station on the network at about 12 m (39 ft) underground, and is the only station on the line to serve as an interchange with the Downtown Line. It has an orange livery. The station is near landmarks such as the Newton Food Centre. This station used to be denoted by code N4 before the rail system map was revamped August 2001.

There is no paid link between the North South Line and Downtown line due to insufficient space and clearance, meaning commuters are required to tap out and then tap in again when transferring lines. It is also due to the 24-hour linkway involved. However, there will not be any extra fare charged as long as the transfer is made within 15 minutes.[1]

Art in Transit[edit]

The Downtown Line section of the station feature the artwork "Newton" by MessyMsxi. The artwork draws inspiration from Singapore and Newton heritage, featuring the imagined landscape of Singapore in 2200. It envisions an alternative reality of how it may look as the country progresses, and to evolve and develop to newer heights.
