    With this MRT station this will be the nearest MRT station to Gardens by the Bay. Even bus service 400 will have no use by the time this station opens.

    I thought both platforms will be used as turnarounds? Cause between Marina South and Gardens By The Bay, there is a cripple siding track.

    I found an exit for Gardens By the Bay station. It is just outside Marina Barrage, towards Gardens by the Bay. Nearby, you will see it.
