Admiralty MRT Station (NS10) is an above-ground station along the North South Line (NSL). It is located within the Woodlands East planning subzone, and located next to Woodlands Avenue 7, near the junction of Woodlands Avenue 6 and Woodlands Drive 71.

The station takes its name from a former British Naval Base at the northern coast of Singapore, which is fairly far away from Admiralty MRT and in fact closer to Sembawang. It opened in Feburary 1996 a part of the NSL (Woodlands Extension), and is one of three stations serving the Woodlands New Town (alongside Woodlands and Marsiling stations). It serves residential areas around the Woodlands East areas (Neighbourhoods 6 and 7), along with schools and community amenities.

Admiralty station has two elevated North South Line platforms in an island platform arrangement. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for commuters’ safety, and High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans keep passengers cool. Similar in design to many other North-South Line elevated stations, a double pitched roof shelters the platform level, supported by two rows of columns. A set of escalators, stairs and lifts connect to the concourse level below.

Passenger Information Systems, which are plasma display screens located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and key messages. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to station exits.

Concourse

The station has a ticket concourse located at ground level. They feature faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least one bidirectional wide-swinging gate for the benefit of passengers-in-wheelchairs and those carrying bulky items or travelling with prams.

General Ticketing Machines allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and along with TransitLink Add Value Machines, offer contactless card transactions. The station office functions as a Passenger Service Centre, and is staffed during operating hours, where commuters may make travel inquiries or perform card transactions using cash payment.

Toilets and retail shops are located in the unpaid areas of the station, at ground level.
