Lakeside MRT Station (EW26) is an elevated Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line.

History

The station used to be a western terminal station for the East West Line before Boon Lay station opened on 6 July 1990. Trains used to terminate at platform B before crossover to platform A and head back east.

Temporary interchange due to JEMP

The services along the East West Line from Clementi to Jurong East was unavailable from 4 September 2010 till 5 September 2010, to facilitate the construction of the connector track as part of the Jurong East Modification Project, Joo Koon bound trains terminated at platform A and utilised the nearby crossover to continue to Joo Koon. Two slow shuttle trains also deployed between this station to Jurong East on both platform A and B, as this stretch have no crossover, these two trains ran slowly as it passed a wrong signal; reverse mode were used to run on a wrong direction on the wrong track.

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 31 August 2010 and HVLS Blade fans which commenced operation on 30 November 2012.
