Know Everything About Marina Bay MRT Station

The Marina Bay MRT Station (NS27/CE2) is Singapore’s southern terminus of the North-South Line. Because this station gets built on reclaimed land with no adjacent developments, it gets separated from the actual town of Marina Bay, despite the name. Locals now utilize the station to connect to a bus service that takes them to a neighboring recreational area. This station will eventually serve businesspeople and office employees who work in Singapore’s up-and-coming New Downtown, an extension of the Central Business District. Residents in the New Downtown and visitors and locals visiting the nearby attractions will get served by Marina Bay MRT station.

Meta Description

Marina Bay MRT Station (NS27/CE2) is a North-South Line (NSL) underground interchange station that also serves as the end of the Circle Line (CCL) Extension.

Station Specifics

Aedas, Quarry Bay & Aedas Pte Ltd created the Circle line station design (Station Architect). Because the Marina Bay MRT station entrances must fit with the park where the station gets located, visibility, integration, and efficiency were key considerations when constructing the CCL portion of the station. The plan includes linkages to future projects and a planned tunnel pedestrian network (converted from a temporary maintenance facility near the station). The translucent canopy functions as a skylight, allowing natural light to enter the underground hall. The broad entrance also lets in a lot of natural light. Only the lift, escalators, lightweight ETFE canopy, and reflective pool are visible from street level, allowing visitors a full view of the park from the station entry, limiting the station’s visual influence on the surrounding park landscape. The reflecting pool also creates a seamless transition from the exits to the park.

In 2012, the station design won the Small Project Award at the World Architecture Festival. Other accolades include the Land Transport Excellence Awards 2012 (for Best Design Rail / Road Infrastructure – Project Partner), the 2013 UIPT Asia-Pacific Grow with Public Transportation Award, and an honorable mention for the Singapore Institute of Architects Architectural Design Awards 2012.

Art-in-Transit

As part of the Art-in-Transit initiative, the station will display two artworks. Flowers in Blossom II by Tay Chee Toh was re-commissioned as a tribute to the tradition of art in Singapore’s MRT train stations after it gets originally hung in Orchard station. The sculptures resemble flowers and hang from the ceiling. Another piece by Nah Yong En, Train Rides on Rainy Days, can be found on the station’s platform level. Fourteen raindrop images depict views that commuters might observe out the train window during the rainy season.

The station lies between Raffles Place and Marina South Pier stations on the North-South line. From 6:00 a.m. to 11.30 p.m., North-South line trains run every 2–5 minutes in both directions.
