Clementi MRT Station (EW23) is an above-ground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits along the boundaries of the Clementi Central and Clementi North planning subzones, and is physically located along Commonwealth Avenue West, next to The Clementi Mall and near the junction of Clementi  Avenue 4 / Avenue 3.

The surrounding residential estates and MRT station takes their name from Clementi Road, which also marks the new town’s eastern boundary and named after Sir Cecil Clementi Smith, Governor of the Straits Settlements from 1887 to 1893.

Clementi station is a transport node for residents of Clementi New Town, serving adjacent shopping malls (The Clementi Mall and Cityvibe), community amenities (Clementi Sports Hall, Clementi Polyclinic, etc.), along with schools and housing developments in the Town Centre area. Bus services are offered from Clementi Bus Interchange, which connect to other parts of the estate.

Clementi station has two elevated East-West Line platforms in an island platform arrangement. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for the safety of commuters, and retrofitted Pro-Jet fans keep passengers cool. Similar to many older stations along the Western side of the East West Line, a simple flat roof shelters the platform level, and the station is painted with a single base colour, which is Blue for this station.

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. Escalators, lifts and stairs connect the Platform level to the Ticket Concourse level below.

Concourse

The station has two ticket concourses located at Level 2. The main ticket concourse is complemented by a second ticket concourse at the eastern end of the station which opened in 2015. Both concourses lead to overhead bridges that span across the road, with lifts, escalators and stairs connecting to street level.

Faregates at both concourses are used for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least 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 (only available at the main concourse), offer contactless card transactions. The station office (main concourse only) 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. A TransitLink ticket office is also located at this station, operating from 8:00am to 9:00pm daily.

Toilets and retail shops are located in the unpaid areas of the main ticket concourse.

Exits

Built in-between two carriageways of Commonwealth Avenue West, Clementi MRT station has two exits on either side of the road, linked to the ticket concourse level by two separate pedestrian overpasses. Exits C and D opened in 2015. All exits offer barrier-free accessibility for the disabled.

Passengers for Clementi Bus Interchange should use Exit A.
