Marsiling 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.

    Hi, above article indicates that there is a taxi stand, pick-up/drop-off point at the Woodlands Ave 3 road for Marsiling MRT Stn.

    Please enlighten me whether the taxi stand can be used as pick-up/drop-off point or do the Marsiling MRT Stn has another designated pick-up/drop-off point.

    Thank you.
