Entrance to Somerset station before the construction of 313@Somerset.
Somerset MRT Station (NS23) is an underground station on the North South Line of the Mass Rapid Transit in Singapore, located under 313@Somerset Shopping Centre between Orchard Road and Somerset Road. It was upgraded in 2002, the first phase of station upgrading works on the system.
The section of tracks between this station and Dhoby Ghaut is the shortest between any two MRT Stations on the North South Line, taking 1 minute for a train to travel between these two stations. Unlike most other underground stations, the toilets in this station are located on the street level rather than the concourse level.
A call was made from a public telephone at the station concourse at about 5 p.m. on 26 September 2007 about a bomb at the station. The police arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with the incident two days later on the morning of September 28, 2007 after finding no bomb.
