Marina Bay (NS27/CE2/TE20) is a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line, Circle Line and the future Thomson–East Coast Line[1].

History[edit]

Date Event
4 November 1989 Station officially opened
8 January 2006 Station involved in Exercise Northstar V (Counter terrorism)[2]
14 January 2012 Station interchanged with Circle Line

Construction challenges[edit]

The construction of the tunnel to the station was rather challenging at the time, as the tunnel went below the Telok Ayer basin and the station and tunnels were to be built in soft soil. Due to the soft marine clay, open excavation was not possible. Divers had to cut the 20m trenches, where the MRT tunnels were to be laid, in zero visibility and very muddy water. A concrete base for the tunnels was then laid with the water pumped out for the tunnels and the station to be built on. The tunnels were then covered with another layer of concrete before the seabed was refilled.[3][4] During the construction, a World War II-era bomb was found at the work site. The Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Bomb Disposal Unit was called and the bomb was safely detonated elsewhere.[5]

Ground freezing will also be applied for the first time in Singapore rail construction when building the Thomson–East Coast Line part of this station, where it under-cross the existing North South Line and Circle Line tunnels.[6]

Artworks[edit]

  • NS27-National Day Babies in 2015.png
    North South Line: National Day Babies in 2015 by Tay Kay Chin
    These 50 photographed images featured 53 Singaporeans born from year 1965 to 2014 as a birthday gift to Singapore in celebrating SG50. The 53 Singaporeans chosen reflects Singapore's demography in terms of gender, ethnic, and occupation. Sharing these photographs of people born on August 9, our National Day, who take different routes to success, the artist hopes to inspire all who passes by the artwork to strive and believe in one self and succeed in doing something extraordinary for the benefit of our nation.

    Circle Line: Train Rides on Rainy Days by Nah Yong En
    Just as rain brings cool relief and wash the city anew, this collection of images brings a refreshing element of nature into the underground station. The 14 raindrop photos depict scenes that commuters can see if they looked out of the window during a rainy train ride above ground.[7]
  • CE2-Flowers in Blossom.png
    Circle Line: Flowers in Blossom II by Tay Chee Toh
    The mobile of delicate sculptures resembling flowers was originally hung in Orchard station. It was re-commissioned as homage to the legacy of art in Singapore’s MRT train stations, even before the Art in Transit programme was launched in 1997 for the North East Line.[7]

Architecture[edit]

Visibility, integration and efficiency as the focal points when designing the Circle Line portion of the station. The design also has provisions for a future underground pedestrian network and connections to future developments. The translucent canopy acts as a skylight to allow natural light into the underground hall. The large entrance also allows large amounts of natural light to enter the station.[8] To limit the visual impact of the station to the surrounding park landscape, only the lift, escalators, the lightweight ETFE canopy and the reflective pool are visible from street level, giving users a full view of the park from the station entrance. The reflective pool also provides a smooth transition between the exits and the park.[9]

The station design was the winner of the Small Project Award at the World Architecture Festival in 2012.[9] Other awards includes the Land Transport Excellence Awards 2012,[10] the 2013 UIPT Asia-Pacific Grow with Public Transport Award[11] and honourable mention for the Singapore Institute of Architects Architectural Design Awards 2012.[12]
