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. At 313 @ Somerset, there is a 24-hour linkway involved.
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.
