Kranji MRT Station
| NS7 |
|Address||960 Woodlands Road|
|Line(s)||North South Line|
|Opened||10 February 1996|
During the initial planning of the North South Line Woodlands Extension in 1990, Kranji MRT station was not included on the route. It was later included as a provisional station to be built in the future. However, the government later decided to construct this station as part of the extension and to serve the Singapore Turf Club, making this station to be one of the lowest riderships along the North South Line.
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 Peninsula Malaysia. This proposal has since been shelved due to the fallout from the Malaysia–Singapore Points of Agreement of 1990.
On 4 October 2002 at 16:44pm, a train officer noted thick smoke coming up from a factory located near the viaduct in between Yew Tee and Kranji stations. As a precaution, services were halted and the SCDF was alerted. At 18:10pm, services were resumed when SCDF and the technical staff gave the all clear.
On 25 December 2007, southbound train service between Yew Tee and Woodlands was disrupted at 09:43am when a train driver spotted someone jump onto the southbound track at this station. Police and SCDF were on site to investigate the incident but no one was found.
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.
