Raffles Place MRT Station (EW14/NS26) is a major interchange station of the Singapore MRT system. It is located beneath the financial district of Raffles Place, which is in the Downtown Core of Singapore. The North South MRT Line and East West MRT Line pass through here.
When it opened on 12 December, 1987, the Raffles Place MRT Station was the biggest subway station in Singapore. It has since moved to third place behind the Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station and Bras Basah MRT Station.
The Raffles Place MRT Station is linked to Raffles Xchange, a subterranean mall, located at Basement 1. Raffles Xchange provides seamless link from the MRT station to the surrounding buildings such as Hitachi Tower, Republic Plaza, Chevron House and UOB Plaza.
