At the intersection of Upper Aljunied Road and Youngberg Terrace, the station gets located beneath Upper Serangoon Road. The station, along with Buangkok, was one of two finished MRT stations that remained closed when the NEL opened on June 20, 2003. Due to a lack of commuter traffic, the station remained closed until June 20, 2011, reopened to service the then-new Stamford American International School and nearby growing residential units, coinciding with the North-East Line’s 8th anniversary. The Woodleigh MRT station will also assist in the upcoming Bidadari housing estate in the Bidadari neighborhood.

Full-height Platform screen doors separate the air-conditioned station from the underground environment, improving commuter safety and station comfort. Escalators, stairwells, and elevators lead to the concourse. Expected train arrival times and dominant messages get shown on Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display panels positioned at each platform.
The concourse has fare gates for automatic fee collection passage between the station’s paid and unpaid portions, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for passengers in wheelchairs, carrying heavy objects, or those traveling with prams. Commuters can purchase tickets for a single or several trips from General Ticketing Machines, which support contactless card transactions like Top-up Machines.
