The depot is built on floodplains of the Kallang River, covering an area of 300,000 square metres. It contains a central maintenance facility (with train overhaul facilities for trains on the North South Line and East West Line), stabling areas and staff training facilities. It is accessed from Bishan Road.

The depot is bordered by Bishan Road, Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1, the Central Expressway (CTE) and the Kallang River. A long test track runs along the depot’s eastern fringe, reaching up to Braddell Road.

Situated between Ang Mo Kio and Bishan stations, there are a total of 3 reception tracks: 2 tracks heading northbound towards Ang Mo Kio station and 1 track heading southbound towards Bishan station.
