Kallang MRT Station (EW10) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Kallang, Singapore. It is painted in yellow livery and located next to the Kallang River, which is famous for its water sports. 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 in the Central Business District.
The station is within the vicinity of Boon Keng, Stadium and the planned Geylang Bahru MRT stations. Kallang station is located next to the Lorong 1 Geylang Bus Terminal and within walking distance to the Kallang Riverside Park located at Kampong Bugis.
When Stadium MRT Station was under construction, Kallang station would be crowded when either the Singapore Indoor Stadium or the National Stadium hosted an event. After the opening of the Singapore Sports Hub, a sheltered walkway was built to connect Kallang station to the Singapore Sports Hub to ease the commuter load on Stadium station.
Platform screen doors
As with most of the above-ground stations along the East West Line, it was built without platform screen doors. Installation of half-height platform screen doors, to prevent commuters from falling onto the train tracks, was started on 19 December 2010 and started operation on 25 February 2011 with Kembangan.
High volume, low speed (HVLS) fans
This station is fitted with Rite Hite Revolution High Volume, Low Speed (HVLS) fans and these fans have been operating since 28 July 2012.
