Tanjong Pagar MRT station (EW15) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line in Downtown Core, Singapore. This station primarily serves the business district along Robinson Road and Shenton Way. It sits at the Tanjong Pagar area, alongside the Anson Road, Robinson Road and Cecil Street area.
Historically, the area was a fishing village, with Tanjong Pagar in Malay referring to wooden stakes propping the kelongs (offshore huts) above the waterline. Land reclamation has since extended the coastline, where the current Central Business District now stands.
The station was expanded in 2004 to facilitate disabled access and the new Exit I was later opened. Before the Tanjong Pagar Centre (Exit J) opens, there are several exits in the MRT station, all connected by the underpass:
- A: Peck Seah Street
- B: Maxwell Road
- C: Anson Road
- D: Prince Edward Road
- E: AXA Tower (formerly Temasek Tower)
- F: Robinson Road
- G: Telok Ayer (Amoy Street Market)
- H: Springleaf Street
The faregates at this station were replaced in 12 October 2012 and the Exit I faregates were replaced on 20 August 2017.
There is an artwork called Stainless Steel Mobiles by artist Anthony Poon hanging from the ceiling on the station as well as a polymarble mural by Aw Tee Hong called Epic of Singapore.
