Esplanade MRT Station (CC3) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the Circle MRT Line in Singapore. The station was opened on 17 April 2010 along with the rest of Stage 1 & 2 of the Circle Line. It is located next to the War Memorial Park, the Suntec City Mall and the Suntec Singapore International Convention and Exhibition Centre. The station also has a link to Raffles City , CityLink Mall , Suntec City Mall and Marina Square


There is a link from Circle Line's Esplanade station to City Hall MRT Station via the underground shopping centre Raffles City or CityLink Mall.

HistoryEdit

The underpass linking CityLink Mall and Suntec City Mall had been closed since 2003 to facilitate the construction of the station and pedestrians had to use a temporary covered overhead bridge to cross Raffles Boulevard.

On 30 April 2008, the underpass was reopened to the public after five years of closure. It's also the first of the Circle Line stations where the public can have a glimpse of the interior. During the opening of the underpass, Suntec City Mall gave away free coffee, chocolates and sweets to pedestrians to mark the reopening of the underpass. There were also music and line dancing performances.

The bridge underwent dismantling starting 12 May 2008.[1]

ArchitectureEdit

A black and white artwork by the late Lim Mu Hue which features shadow puppetry and other performances enjoyed by the early settlers of Singapore was recreated on a large wall and is located within the walkway within the station between Raffles City and Marina Square.
