History

When the North South Line Woodlands Extension was proposed in 1990, Kranji MRT station was not included on this planned route. It was later included as a provisional station to be built at a later stage.[1] However, the government later decided to construct this station as part of the extension and also to serve the Singapore Turf Club.[2] This station was opened on 10 February 1996 along with the other five stations on the Woodlands Extension. There were initial plans for a KTM railway station to be located near the station, to serve passengers travelling to and from Johor Bahru and the rest of Malaysia. This proposal has since been shelved.

Platform screen doors & High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Fans

Together with the elevated stations along the North South Line and East West Line, it was originally built without any Platform Screen Doors to prevent commuters from falling into the train tracks and HVLS Fans to improve air ventilated on the platforms. The station was retrofitted with half-height platform screen doors which commenced operations on 14 March 2012 and HVLS Blade fans which commenced operation on 30 November 2012.
