Tanah Merah MRT Station

Eastbound trains going towards Changi Airport arrive at the middle track of the station. It was built originally for off-service trains to return to Changi depot. Ang Mo Kio MRT Station's middle track served the same purpose, despite now Ang Mo Kio still has no shuttle service utilsing the middle platform, the middle track in Tanah Merah still has off-service trains to Changi Depot.

Tanah Merah MRT Station (EW4) is an above ground Mass Rapid Transit station on the East West Line in Singapore.

The station is between Simei and Bedok and is an interchange for trains going to Changi Airport and Expo. Trains going to these two stations utilise the middle platform.

The station's design is whitewashed walls and a dome-shaped ceiling, with a glass roof running along the middle of the station. It was originally not going to be open with the rest of the East West Line in 1990 as there were only private houses surrounding it, but increasing pressure from Members of Parliament and the public forced SMRT to open this station. This case mirrors the controversy on Buangkok station about more than a decade later.

The station is the only MRT interchange station to have only one alphanumeric symbol (as opposed to other interchange stations, which have at least two). The station is also the only interchange station to not be part of two or more lines (due to it being an interchange between the main East West Line and the Changi Airport Extension of the line).
