The station is at the junction of the Dhoby Ghaut and Marina Bay branches of the CCL. It is the deepest station in Singapore at 43 meters below ground. The deepest platform is at Basement 7.
TECO supplied 200m² of artwork vitreous enamel panels for this project. The artwork “Earthcake” by Ana Prvacki, installed at the DTL platforms as feature walls, depicts the multiple layers of Singapore’s geology, history, culture, growth, and development through the tiers of cultural sediment permeating the area. This artwork, intended to be a “collage of earth and local desserts”, also bears similarity with one of the colorful local kuehs, reflecting Singapore’s multi-culturalism centred on food. Artwork vitreous enamel provides an ideal medium through which practical as well as artistic solutions such as patterns, graphics, logos, signs, and murals can be incorporated into the design of a station. They can be manufactured in various sizes and personalized with individual designs and prints. TECO has supplied numerous high-quality artwork VE panels in overseas projects. Projects include: MTR stations renovation, new MTR station, infrastructure, building interior, and exterior wall cladding, and public facility works. TECO artwork VE panel is perfectly suited for MRT station use. They are resistant to scratch and abrasion, anti-graffiti, and almost maintenance-free. Moreover, they always retain their original color and bright finish throughout the normal expected life of the stations.
