Changi MRT Depot is an at-grade train depot serving the East West Line (EWL).
The depot is built near Tanah Merah, covering an area of 250,000 square metres, and bordered by Upper Changi Road East, Xilin Avenue and Laguna Golf Green. It contains a maintenance facility and stabling area designed for 30 trains, and is accessed from Koh Sek Lim Road. It opened in 1989 along with the eastern stretch of the East West Line.
The depot will be replaced by the future East Coast Integrated Depot, scheduled for completion in 2024. The facility will also serve the Downtown Line and the Thomson-East Coast Line. Currently, modification work is being done on the reception tracks to accommodate the new depot, being built south of the current Changi Depot site.
