Ten Mile Junction LRT Depot is an elevated MRT train depot serving the Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT) line.

The depot is built in-between the Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang estates, at the junction of Woodlands Road and Choa Chu Kang Road. To optimize land use, the elevated depot was integrated with the Ten Mile Junction shopping mall with retail space occupied the bottom two floors, making it the first integrated depot in Singapore. Levels 3 and 3M house the depot floor and access is restricted.

After redevelopment works in 2010-2011, the mall was renamed Junction 10 and a condominium (The Tennery) was built on top of the depot, occupying Levels 4 and above. However, the names of the depot and accompanying LRT station have not been changed.

Inside, the depot houses the Bukit Panjang LRT Operations Control Centre along with administrative and support offices, as well as maintenance facilities and stabling areas for trains. Within the same building is Ten Mile Junction station, the terminating station for Service C trains.

Ten Mile Junction Depot is situated between Phoenix and Bukit Panjang stations, with a total of 2 reception tracks: 1 heading westbound towards Phoenix, and 1 heading eastbound towards Bukit Panjang.

Ten Mile Junction Depot maintains Bombardier INNOVIA APM 100 trains (C801 and C801A) operating on the Bukit Panjang LRT.
