The Taman Connaught MRT station follows the standard design for elevated stations of the MRT Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line with an elevated concourse level and a platform level above. The station is located above Jalan Cheras near the northern end of the Grand Saga Expressway . The station is close to the Federal Territory-Selangor border.
The main landmark for the station is the Cheras Sentral Shopping Centre, once known as Phoenix Plaza. A link bridge connects the station with the shopping complex.
Exits and entrancesEdit
The station has three entrances - Entrance A and Entrance B on either side of Jalan Cheras, and Entrance C at Jalan 3/144A inside Taman Connaught. A link bridge also connects the station via the link bridges to Entrance A and Entrance C with the Cheras Sentral Shopping Mall.

The station was thus provisionally named Plaza Phoenix station during construction. Plaza Phoenix was the former name of the Cheras Sentral Shopping Centre.
Taman Connaught station, or rather Plaza Phoenix station, was initially planned to be an interchange between the Sungai Buloh-Kajang Line and the SSP Line when the MRT lines were first announced. The alignments were later changed and Tun Razak Exchange became the interchange instead.
