Kaki Bukit station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement, with both platforms utilized for trains travelling in either direction. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort.

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 the station exits.

Concourse

The concourse features 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 Top-up 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.

A public toilet is located in the unpaid area of the DTL concourse.

Construction

Downtown Line Stage 3 (DTL3) Contract 929 for the construction and completion of Kaki Bukit Station was awarded to China State Construction Engineering Corporation Limited for approximately S$93.8 million in June 2011. Along with Contract C932A for Kallang Bahru (now Geylang Bahru) station, these two contracts were the Chinese company’s first MRT contracts in Singapore.

To facilitate construction, Kaki Bukit Avenue 1 between Jalan Damai and Jalan Tenaga was closed to traffic from August 2011 to April 2016. Bus services  were diverted along Jalan Tenaga, Bedok Reservoir Road and Jalan Damai before rejoining Kaki Bukit Avenue 1.
