Location

Redhill MRT Station (EW18) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore. This is the last above-ground station until Kallang. Eastward of the station towards Tiong Bahru Estate, 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.

Redhill is the only MRT station in which the two platforms are not parallel to each other.

Platform screen doors[edit]

In view of accidents along the MRT line, platform screen doors were installed and started operations on 31 May 2011.[1]

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

Operating since 15 August 2012 after installation of MJ Air Tech High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) Pro-Jet fans completed.
