Ten Mile Junction LRT Station (BP14) was a light rail station along the Bukit Panjang LRT (BPLRT) located within the Junction 10 shopping mall, which also houses the Ten Mile Junction LRT Depot. It was the terminating station for Service C trains, and the only air-conditioned station throughout the BPLRT network.
Ten Mile Junction was the old name for the Junction 10 mall, which in turn got its name from an old form of distance markings along Singapore roads using the number of miles away from the City centre. The current Bukit Timah Road and Upper Bukit Timah Road was formerly a major trunk road, and Ten Mile Junction would be roughly 10 miles (16 kilometres) from the City centre.
Ten Mile Junction Station was permanently closed on 13 January 2019, as part of Bukit Panjang LRT overhaul works. Service C, which operated out of this station, ceased operations as well on the same day. The previous estimated date of closure (4th Quarter 2018) was revised in December 2018.
The vacated station space will thereafter be converted into a stabling and testing ground for the new C801B Trains for the Bukit Panjang LRT Line.

The Bukit Panjang LRT station is fully integrated into the building, with one side platform. Full-height Platform screen doors isolate the air-conditioned station from the LRT guideway, enhancing commuter safety and station comfort, and is the only BPLRT station to have platform doors. On the other side of the platform behind the wall, a bypass track leads to Ten Mile Junction LRT Depot.
Only Service C operates out of Ten Mile Junction station, at 20-minute intervals during the day. It heads to Bukit Panjang and follows Service A on the clockwise loop (via Senja) before reaching Bukit Panjang again and then returning to Ten Mile Junction.
Passenger Information Systems, which are LED displays located at each platform, display expected train arrival times and scrolls through messages, while an analog clock gives the time. Tactile flooring helps to guide the visually-handicapped from the platform to the station exits.
The ticket concourse is located on the same level as the platform, the only station on the BPLRT to do so. It features 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.
A General Ticketing Machine at the concourses allow commuters to purchase tickets for single or multiple journeys, and perform contactless card transactions. The concourse only has one ticketing machine serving both paid and unpaid areas, with a swing gate that allows either side to access the machine at any one time, and another ticketing machine within the unpaid area. Since the station is not staffed, an intercom system near the faregates allows commuters to speak with BPLRT Operations Control Centre for assistance.
Staircases and lifts connect the ticket concourse level (L3) to street level (L1) without stopping at L2. Access to U3 is restricted to Ten Mile Junction Depot staff. Speakers in the lift are linked to the platform and broadcasts platform announcements.
Ten Mile Junction LRT station has a single exit at street level. Barrier-free accessibility is offered via a lift.

Station closure (2010 – 2011)
Ten Mile Junction station was closed from 10 December 2010 to 29 December 2011 to accommodate renovation works at Ten Mile Junction shopping mall, which resulted in the withdrawal of Service C during that period. The station reopened on 30 December 2011 along with the reinstatement of Service C, and the station retained its original name despite the mall being re-branded as Junction 10.
