Lavender MRT Station (EW11) is an underground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Kallang, Singapore. It is located underneath the junction of Kallang Road and Kallang Walk. This station is within the vicinity of the planned Bendemeer and Jalan Besar stations.
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.
Cash top ups are no longer accepted from 1 September 2017 at this station.
Like most MRT stations in Singapore, Lavender has been retrofitted sometime between 2000 and 2006 to make it accessible to the physically challenged. The station entrance next to the ICA Building has a wheelchair-accessible lift connecting the street and concourse level. As with other stations, a second lift connects the concourse and train platform levels, and is located beyond the station ticket gates. Apart from these lifts, the station also has accessible toilets, and various markings and features to help the visually challenged to make their way through the station.
The exit A and exit B are connected by the underpass of the station. Both of which opens 24-hours to allow convenience for pedestrians.
