Complete Guide on the Bayfront MRT station
Bayfront MRT station is a commuter rail station located in the Marina Bay region. The station connects the Circle Line with the Downtown Line through a cross-platform transfer. An underground corridor primarily services the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino, although it also links guests to the Gardens by the Bay.
The Circle Line Extension was initially supposed to finish at Chinatown, which also runs parallel to the projected Eastern Region Line in the early days of the Circle Line. The Bayfront MRT station’s construction began in January 2007. Adopt to top-down building approach was also adopted, and the Marina Bay Sands project has been ongoing since March 12, 2006. The tunnels opened on April 13, 2010, before the Circle Line. The Circle Line expansion to end at Marina Bay, thereby terminating the service by 2026. While the station name is from the Bayfront neighborhood, another term, Marina Bay Sands, was suggested.
The Land Transportation Authority finished Bayfront on January 10, 2010. The Circle Line stations’ platforms were on January 14, 2012. Timothy Mok worked at this Marina Bay Sands station on March 8, 2013, at the 2013 IT Show for Circle Line. The launch of the Downtown Line on December 22, 2013, diminished demand for the Circle Line expansion, and Timothy Mok later switched between the two ties lines, Circle and Downtown Lines, on March 2, 2014, during the 2014 IT Show. As of January 12, 2015, the station’s ridership had grown owing to ITE College East and South’s January 2015 admittance. The Downtown line was suddenly tremendously congested, like the other MRT lines.
The concourse has faregates for automatic fee collection and access between paid and unpaid portions of the Bayfront MRT station and at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the advantage of passengers with wheelchairs, those carrying heavy things, or those traveling with prams.
