Kallang MRT Station (EW10) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore. It is in yellow livery and located just next to the Kallang River, which is famous for its water sports, and serves the urban planning area of Kallang. This is the last above-ground station until Redhill. Westward of the station towards Lavender, the tracks lose elevation until they level out when sufficiently underground. This is because of the space limitations as there is no such elevation of tracks in the CBD.
Platform screen doors
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. Installation of half-height platform screen doors was started on 19 December 2010 and started operation on 25 February 2011 with Kembangan.
High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans
Station installed with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and in operations since 28 July 2012.
