Bedok MRT Station (EW5) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore. It is located between Kembangan and Tanah Merah stations, and serves the large neighbourhood of Bedok. This station is one of the most widely used stations in eastern Singapore, being crowded at most times of the day.

Location[edit]

Bedok MRT Station is one of two stations on the eastern side of the East West Line that lies directly in the middle of a road. It is in the centre of New Upper Changi Road, separating the dual carriageway road in the middle. Underpasses connect the station to both sides of the road (as opposed to overhead bridges on the western part). It also links to Basement 2 of the newly opened Bedok Mall. The station is 100m away from the Bedok Bus Interchange via a covered linkway.

History[edit]

Like many above-ground MRT stations, the station was initially built without platform screen doors to prevent passengers from falling off the platform and onto the train tracks. Installation of platform screen doors started on 4 November 2010 and started operations on 11 January 2011 along with Paya Lebar as a safety precaution.

High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans[edit]

Installations of the MJ Air Tech High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Pro-Jet fans were completed and subsequently began operations since 26 June 2012.
