Lavender MRT station (EW11) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station on the East West Line in Kallang, Singapore. Located under the junction of Kallang Road and Kallang Walk, Lavender station is adjacent to the Immigration and Checkpoints Authority (ICA) Building.
Although it was built together with the original two-line MRT network, Lavender station only became operational on 4 November 1989, almost exactly two years after the first MRT trains started running in Singapore as the original network was opened in phases. Lavender station was opened along with the section of the East West Line from City Hall to Tanah Merah.
Similar to other older stations, Lavender has been renovated to make it accessible to the physically and visually challenged. Apart from this and some other minor works, the station has remained virtually unchanged since it was built in the late 1980s.
To commemorate Total Defence Day in 2000, the Singapore Civil Defence Force conducted the first ever Shelter Open House at this station on February 15 and February 16, together with Tiong Bahru and Somerset stations.
