Promenade MRT Station (CC4/DT15) is an underground interchange station located in the Downtown Core (Marina Centre planning subzone), connecting the Circle Line (CCL) and the Downtown Line (DTL), while serving as an interchange between regular Circle Line train services to Dhoby Ghaut and Circle Line Extension train services to Marina Bay via Bayfront.

Located underneath Temasek Avenue and adjacent to Millenia Tower, the station brings rail connections to Suntec City and the Marina Centre area, along with attractions such as the Singapore Flyer and The Float @ Marina Bay. It also serves the nearby Marina Reservoir area.

The design of the station is unique for an interchange station, comprising four side platforms stacked vertically over multiple floors. The deepest platform is at Basement 7 for Downtown Line train services towards Bukit Panjang, at 43 metres below ground level.

Promenade station has four platforms utilized by both rail lines for trains travelling in either direction, arranged in a four side platforms spanning four separate underground floors, with the Circle Line occupying the upper two and the Downtown Line occupying the lower two. A cross-platform interchange was not possible at this station as the Circle Line makes a very sharp right turn towards Esplanade, interfering with the Downtown Line which heads straight towards Bayfront. Tightening the curve radius to allow the Circle Line to occupy the two currently unused platforms might not have been possible.

As a result, the station was opened with an unused tunnel at Basements 2 and 4, where another platform would have been located, and the current Circle Line platforms operated as side platforms with large concourse areas. The Downtown Line side platforms were eventually built underneath the existing Circle Line station in a stacked formation (Basement 6 and 7), with its two tracks located directly underneath the unused platform at Basement 4. A part of the previously-unused Basement 4 unused platform was used to construct the DTL transfer concourse, where escalators and lifts connect it to the lower DTL platform levels. (There are no direct lifts or escalators to the station concourse; passengers commuting to and from the DTL platform(s) must change escalators or lifts at B4). The thought process behind such constructions are unknown.

As an interchange station for the Circle Line Extension, Circle Line train services towards Marina Bay will operate as a shuttle between Stadium and Marina Bay stations throughout most of the day. These services will operate every alternate train between Dhoby Ghaut and HarbourFront. However, during weekday peak hours, train services from Marina Bay will serve the full line, operating between Marina Bay and HarbourFront stations.

The station main concourse is at Basement 1, with faregates, top up kiosks and the Circle Line Passenger Service Centre.

The station concourse has an unpaid link at Basement 1 that allows commuters to use the station’s underground walkways between exits without entering the paid areas of the station.

With the DTL platforms built underneath the CCL station, an additional concourse at Basement 4 links the CCL station with the DTL station, where the Downtown Line Passenger Service Centre is located.

The DTL concourse occupied part of a disused platform opposite of CCL Platform A. There are no direct lifts or escalators to the DTL concourse; passengers commuting from the CCL concourse at B1 change escalators or lifts at B4.

CCL¬†Art in Transit:¬†“Dreams in Social Cosmic Odyssey”¬†by :phunk Studios

Dreams in Social Cosmic Odyssey
Dreams in Social Cosmic Odyssey

The artwork comprising huge metallic droplets hanging from the ceiling represents an illuminated celebration of collective dreams, cleverly plays with the skylight to illuminate the space with glowing reflections of the light dancing from the water droplets of life, creating a kaleidoscope of patterns on the station floors, walls and ceilings. Analogous to a Promenade usually next to a river or large body of water, it illustrates the interaction between people and society, day and night, sky and water.

The installation is among the largest artworks installed at MRT stations island-wide.

DTL Art in Transit:¬†“Earthcake”¬†by Ana Prvackihe

A collage of many¬†coloured strata layers, Earthcake draws analogies to¬†the geology of the Earth¬†and thousand layer cakes commonly seen in Singapore. Exposing the stratification of earth and soil reveals the intertwined strata of thousand-year old soil and a thousand-layer cake, depicting Singapore’s food culture and its connection to its history and culture.
