Learn more about the Kranji MRT with this guide.
Kranji MRT station was not included in the proposed North-South Line Woodlands Extension route when it gets first proposed in 1990. It gets later included as a temporary station that would build later. The government eventually opted to construct this station as part of the expansion and serve the Singapore Turf Club. This station first opened its doors on February 10, 1996. A KTM train station gets planned to build near the station to service travelers traveling to and from Johor Bahru and the rest of Peninsula Malaysia. Due to the fallout from the Malaysia–Singapore Points of Agreement of 1990, this project gets scrapped. The Land Transport Authority decided in 2008 to phase in half-height platform screen doors for all above-ground stations after multiple incidences of commuters falling on the tracks and unlawful invasions. The HHPSDs were active on March 14, 2012, as the system’s final set of gates. Half-height Platform Screen Doors are now in use at Kranji MRT stations as of March 14, 2012. This station, which opened with Yew Tee on November 27, 2012, was equipped with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low- Speed fans.
The Kranji station, like the others on the Woodlands Extension, opened on February 10, 1996, and the last station screen doors get placed on March 14, 2012.
Kranji station has two elevated North-South Line platforms in an island platform style. For the safety of commuters, half-height Platform screen doors get erected at the platform edge, and High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans keep travelers cool. In Kranji MRT, A double pitched roof protects the platform level, supported by two rows of columns, similar to many other North-South Line elevated stations. The concourse level gets reached through escalators, stairs, and lifts. Expected train arrival times and messages get shown on Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display panels positioned at each platform. Tactile flooring aids the sight-impaired in getting from the platform to the station exits.
A ticket concourse gets placed on the ground level of the station. They include fare gates for automatic fee collection and access between the paid and unpaid portions of the station and at least one bidirectional wide-swinging door for passengers in wheelchairs, those carrying heavy objects, or those traveling with prams. Commuters can purchase tickets for a single or several trips through General Ticketing Machines, which support contactless card transactions like TransitLink Add Value Machines. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre during operating hours, where commuters may ask questions. Thanks to pricing gates and station departure gates, the ticket concourse is geared to accommodate numbers of Turf Cub passengers coming and departing the station.
