Kranji MRT Station (NS7) is an above-ground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the North South Line in Sungei Kadut, Singapore. The station is situated along Woodlands Road and is the nearest station to the Singapore Turf Club.
When the North South Line Woodlands Extension was proposed in 1990, Kranji MRT station was not included on this planned route. It was later included as a provisional station to be built at a later stage. However, the government later decided to construct this station as part of the extension and also to serve the Singapore Turf Club This station was opened on 10 February 1996 along with the other five stations on the Woodlands Extension. There were initial plans for a KTM railway station to be located near the station, to serve passengers travelling to and from Johor Bahru and the rest of Peninsula Malaysia. This proposal has since been shelved due to the fall-out from the Malaysia–Singapore Points of Agreement of 1990.
Following numerous incidents of commuters falling on the tracks and unauthorized intrusions, the Land Transport Authority made the decision in 2008 to install half height platform screen doors (HHPSD) for all above-ground stations in phases. HHPSDs started operating on 14 March 2012, the last set of gates on the system to go operational. All the elevated MRT stations have Half-height Platform Screen Doors in operation with effect from 14 March 2012.
