The Things To Know About Marymount MRT
Marymount MRT Station (CC16) is a Circle Line (CCL) Stage 3 station located at the intersection – of the Marymount and Upper Thomson planning subzones. It gets located near – Marymount Lane and Bishan Street 21 beneath Marymount Road. Marymount station’s architecture is similar to neighboring CCL3 stations Bartley and Lorong Chuan. Marymount MRT serves companies, housing projects, and Raffles Institution in the area.
Marymount Ro gets briefly blocked for realignment work on February 10, 2004. The station names were ‘Marymount’ and ‘Shunfu,’ and Marymount was picked – in the end. This station served as a Circle line terminus until the HarbourFront segment of the Circle line opened on October 8, 2011. Before the opening of Upper Thomson in 2020, Marymount MRT station was the nearest MRT station in the Thomson region.
Circle Line of Platforms (B2):
The island platform configuration at Marymount station features two platforms. The air-conditioned station is isolated from the – subterranean environment by full-height Platform screen doors, which improve commuter safety and station comfort. The platform level gets connected to the concourse level one floor above through escalators, stairs, and a lift. The concourse wraps around the platform, creating a wide inner area around the platform’s center, providing the appearance of spaciousness.
Expected train arrival times and messages get shown on Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display panels positioned at each platform. Tactile flooring aids the sight-impaired in getting from the platform to the station exits.
The station concourse at Basement 1 has faregates for automatic fee collection and access between paid and unpaid portions of the station, including at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the advantage of passengers with wheelchairs, those carrying heavy objects, or those traveling with prams. An unpaid walkway runs through the concourse, allowing people to transit between station exits without entering the train network’s paid zones. As a result, faregates can get found at both the escalator/staircase landing and the lift landing.
Commuters can buy tickets for single or many travels from General Ticketing Machines, like Top-up Machines, which accept contactless card transactions. The station office serves as a Passenger Service Center, where commuters may obtain information.
“Superstring” is now in transit.
The piece gets made up of a sequence of single continuous line drawings with no overlaps or breaks. The art wall drawing is complete with gap dimensions and bolt locations. The artist wants to highlight the discrepancies between the planned building and the finished wall that the observer will see. The observer can see through the glass and the structures behind the ticket machines because the drawing surrounds them. It’s a parody of the age-old method of single-point perspective drawing to create an imagined three-dimensional space; here, the three-dimensional space is compressed with a single, continuous line, allowing the observer to notice the fourth dimension: time.
