Tuas West Road 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.

The station is built with a barrel vault roof design similar to other stations between Tuas Link and Pioneer, and many other overground stations along the Eastern side of the East West Line. The large curved roof does away with support columns for a more specious feel and easy navigation at platform level. Half-height Platform screen doors are installed at the platform edge for the safety of commuters, and retrofitted High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans keep passengers cool. Skylights on the roof, running the length of the station, allow natural lighting into the station platforms.

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 Level 2. 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.

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.

A link bridge across Pioneer Road connects to two exits on either side of the road.
