Eunos MRT Station (EW7) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore. It is located next to the Eunos Bus Interchange.

Design[edit]

The station is designed with a traditional Malay roof structure and shape, but using modern materials such as steel beams, similar to that of the Eunos Bus Interchange. This is to provide a sense of identity to the area, as Eunos bus interchange lies close to Geylang Serai and the Malay Village.

This station, as well as Tanah Merah station, has a different style of architecture from other stations on the eastern part of the East West Line which feature white round semicircular roofs.

Platform screen doors[edit]

As with most of the above-ground stations along the East West Line, it was built without platform screen doors to prevent commuters from falling onto the train tracks. The installation of half-height platform screen doors started on 5 October 2010 and operations started on 16 December 2010.[1]

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

Station is installed with MJ Air Tech High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Pro-Jet fans and started operations on 11 September 2012 together with Queenstown.
