Kranji MRT Station (NS7) is an elevated Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line in Singapore. On the North South Line, it is between Yew Tee and Marsiling stations.

This station was not intended to be built during the initial planning of the Woodlands Extension due to low population of the town.[1] However, it was built to cater the heavy crowds from the Kranji Racecourse.[2] This station was the only station along the North South Line to be low usage.

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 and commenced operations on 14 March 2012. The station was also retrofitted with HVLS Blade fans and commenced operation on 30 November 2012.
