Lakeside MRT Station (EW26) is an above-ground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits within the Taman Jurong planning subzone, adjacent to the Lakeside and Hong Kah subzones, and is physically located along Boon Lay Way, near the junction with Yuan Ching Road and Jurong West Street 51.

The station was named Lakeside, owing to its close proximity to Jurong Lake. It serves as a transport node for residents of the Hong Kah and Taman Jurong areas, complemented by strong bus connections heading into these residential estates. Bus services also connect to the Jurong Industrial Estate and Jurong Port areas, making Lakeside a heavily-utilized station.

Lakeside station has two elevated¬†East-West Line¬†platforms in an island platform arrangement. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for the safety of commuters, and High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans keep passengers cool. Similar in design to Chinese Garden¬†station, the station’s straight inclined roof with¬†structural beams on the inside¬†is influenced by Chinese architecture, and supported by two rows of columns.

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. Escalators, lifts and stairs connect the Platform level to the Ticket Concourse level below.


The station has a ticket concourse located at ground level. It features faregates for automatic fare collection and provides access between paid and unpaid areas of the station, with at least 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.

    Hi there, is Lakeside station still often used for bus transfers to Jurong Industrial Estate, or has Pioneer diverted that traffic?
