Chinatown (NE4/DT19) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North East Line and the Downtown Line.

History[edit]

Date Event
20 June 2003 Station officially opened
22 December 2013 Station interchanged with Downtown Line

Construction[edit]

This station is said to be the most challenging station to build on the North East Line, due to the large number of buildings above ground, most with reinforced concrete or timber piles and all in marine clay.[1] Another feat was that they had to preserve Garden Bridge, a large overhead bridge on bore piles, while building the station below.

Artworks[edit]

  • NE4-The Phoenix's-Eye Domain.png
    North East Line: The Phoenix's-Eye Domain by Tan Swie Hian
    This work captures the journey, nobilty and strength of Singapore’s Chinese forefathers. A richly-coloured phoenix mural adorns the concourse wall, while an accompanying poem written by the artist in three sets of rhyming couplets is presented in granite tiles.[2]
  • DT19-Flying Colours.png
    Downtown Line: Flying Colours by Cheo Chai-Hiang
    The everyday scene of laundry on a clothesline is given a creative twist with plenty of colour and an illusion of movement, as if the clothes are reacting to the flow of commuter traffic around the station.[2]
