Marina Bay MRT station

marina bay mrt station, marina bay mrt station singapore
Marina Bay MRT station NS27/CE2/TE20 is an underground Mass Rapid Transit MRT interchange station on the North South Line and Circle Line, located on the boundary of Downtown Core and Straits View planning areas, Singapore

It was the southern terminus on the North South Line until 2014 when Marina South Pier MRT station opened although there are frequent train services terminating at this station, possibly owing to the low ridership of Marina South Pier station Currently, Marina Bay station is the terminus of the Circle Line Extension

The Circle Line section of the station was awarded the winner of the Small Project Award at the World Architecture Festival in 2012

When Stage 3 of the Thomson-East Coast Line opens in 2021, Marina Bay station will become a triple-line interchange, joining Dhoby Ghaut MRT station and Outram Park MRT station Ground freezing will be applied for the first time in Singapore rail construction when building the Thomson-East Coast Line part of this station, where it under-crosses the existing North South Line and Circle Line tunnels

Even though this station was named after the Marina Bay, it is not the nearest MRT station to the bay; Bayfront MRT station and Downtown MRT station are all nearer to Marina Bay than Marina Bay station is

In 2025, when Stage 6 of the Circle Line opens, Marina Bay station will be directly linked to HarbourFront MRT station via Singapore's southern coast, thereby "closing the circle"
