Kallang MRT Station 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.
On 28 December 2005, a 32-year-old Indian man died within minutes after he fell onto the tracks and was subsequently hit by an oncoming west-bound train. The incident occurred at about 3 pm and disrupted train services heading towards Boon Lay for 50 minutes. 4000 passengers had their trips disrupted. The man is believed to have jumped to his death.
On 14 October 2011, some 6,500 commuters were affected by a train delay along the East West Line on Friday evening. An SMRT spokesperson said a westbound train at Kallang encountered a train fault and had to be taken out of service at 5.50 pm. Westbound train service between Kallang and Bugis were disrupted for 20 minutes. Trains were turned around at Bugis and Eunos.
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. Cash top ups are no longer accepted at Passenger Service Centres from 1 September 2017.
