Lavender MRT Station (EW11) is an underground station along the East West Line (EWL). It sits within the Lavender planning subzone, adjacent to the Crawford, Kampong Bugis and Kallang Bahru subzones, and is physically located underneath Kallang Road, near the junction with Lavender Street / Crawford Street.
The station is named after the nearby Lavender Street, thought to be sarcastically named after the constant smell of urine and nightsoil which Chinese market gardeners used as fertilizer. Situated in the Kallang area near the mouth of the Rochor River, Lavender station serves clusters of HDB housing blocks in the vicinity, along with nearby commercial areas, the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority (ICA) Building, and public parks along the Rochor / Kallang river.
