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.

Kranji station has two elevated North South Line platforms in an island platform arrangement. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for commuters’ safety, and High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans keep passengers cool. Similar in design to many other North-South Line elevated stations, a double pitched roof shelters the platform level, supported by two rows of columns. A set of escalators, stairs and lifts connect to the concourse level below.

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.


The station has a ticket concourse located at ground level. They feature 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 TransitLink Add Value 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.

The ticket concourse is designed to cope with large numbers of Turf Cub visitors entering/exiting the station at one time, with large numbers of faregates and station exit gates.

    LTA should expand the bus bay even more for 170x & CW1 so that they don’t block the bus bays
