Telok Blangah Station has two platforms in an island platform arrangement. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the tunnel environment, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort. A set of escalators, stairs and a lift connects the platform level to the concourse level one floor above. The concourse wraps around the platform, creating a large interior space which gives the station a spacious feel.
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 the station exits.
The station concourse at Basement 1 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 Top-up 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 or perform card transactions using cash payment.
Toilets are located at concourse level, near the Passenger Service Centre. There are no retail shops within this station.
Art in Transit: “Notes Towards a Museum of Cooking Pot Bay” by Michael Lee
Notes Towards a Museum of Cooking Pot Bay investigates Telok Blangah as a site of ever-evolving ideas. Beginning with archival research about Telok Blangah, this work takes a literary leap of faith to weave different episodes taking place all at once: It draws links among the neighbourhood’s past, present and future, while stumbling on things here, there and nowhere. The outcome of this exercise is a hypothetical museum for the community of Telok Blangah. As with any institution that studies, collects and displays artefacts of lasting interest, this proposed museum has 5 galleries that highlight key points about the places, people, events, objects both movable and immovable, and ecology of Telok Blangah. Presented here is a mind map about such a museum.
Telok Blangah MRT station has just one exit leading to ground level (A).
