Kranji MRT Station (NS7) is an above-ground station along the North South Line (NSL). It is located within the Turf Club planning subzone (bordering the Kranji subzone), and built next to Woodlands Road. Originally left out of North South Line (Woodlands Extension) plans, the station was eventually built and opened along with other Woodlands Extension stations.
Located near Kranji Road and the Kranji Industrial Estate, these areas are named after the local Keranji tree (Velvet tamarind tree). The station also serves the Singapore Turf Club, Woodlands Wafer Fabrication Park and is a transfer node for passengers heading to Johor Bahru via cross-border bus services.
