Description:
Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station (NS24/NE6/CC1) is a Mass Rapid Transit station in Singapore, located at the eastern end of Orchard Road. Originally it was only a station on the North South Line but after the opening of the North East Line on 20 June 2003, it became the interchange station for these two lines. On 17 April 2010, when the Circle Line wing of the station opened to public, it became the only MRT station in Singapore to be an interchange station for three lines and also the largest MRT station in Singapore. Due to its size, the MRT station is equipped with travellators, and is one of two MRT station in Singapore with travellators in the paid area, the other being at Serangoon MRT Station. The North South Line section of the station was upgraded in 2002 in the first phase of the station upgrading programme, which was completed in 2006. SMRT Corporation operates the North South Line and Circle Line section of the station, while SBS Transit operates the North East Line section. It is currently the largest and second deepest MRT station (after Bras Basah MRT Station) in Singapore. The deepest point is 28 metres in depth and it is the one of the two stations to have five storeys below ground level.
