Platform of City Hall Station
City Hall MRT Station (NS25/EW13) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station in Singapore, that is part of the North South Line and the East West Line in Singapore, and serves as an interchange station between the two lines.
It is located in the Civic District in the Downtown Core, which is within the Central Area, the central business district of Singapore. It is situated underground, beneath the junction of Stamford Road and North Bridge Road, and is thus east of the Singapore River. The commercial district of Raffles Place and the respective Raffles Place MRT Station is located across the River. City Hall MRT Station is one of the more prominent and busier stations within Singapore's transport system, especially being an interchange station located within the Central Area. The national monument of City Hall is within walking distance from the MRT station.
On the ticket level of the station, it leads directly up to street level, with access by escalator, and has two exits, one leading up to North Bridge Road, and one leading to the Raffles City and to the adjacent Stamford Road. The underground CityLink Mall is also linked to the station, providing access to Suntec City, Marina Square and the Esplanade Theatres.

On May 13, 2003, an upward escalator at the MRT station suddenly reversed, flinging some 20 people on it backwards including a woman who was pregnant.
On June 5, 2008, 280 youths spent the night under City Hall MRT station, learning how to deal with an emergency in a train tunnel.
At around midnight, the young campers boarded a train and as the train departed, there was a simulated bomb explosion. They activated the detrainment ramps at both ends of the train, and evacuated to safety via an escape shaft. The students also used the items from their Ready Bags to "survive" the attack.
On December 30, 2008, trains from City Hall MRT Station to Tiong Bahru MRT Station were disrupted at Tanjong Pagar MRT Station because an error on the train was found. So, passengers had to wait for another train to arrive.
