Future MRT Stations Plan - Updated 18 Jan 2013

Singapore is poised to be a nation with the best transport infrastructure in the world. I am very proud of working in Singapore, as it provides a lot of facilities for many workers who do not have private transports to reach any place in Singapore with a lot of convenience compared to its neighbors or even developed countries like UK or France.

With Singapore government's plan to increase population to optimal 7M people in this small island, I believe it would be great if we have a proper plan for the public transport system here. Below is the plan which I captured from beconfused.com.

Thomson Line  and Eastern Region Line will be ready by approximately year 2018 (corrected to be ready by 2019 1st phase and 2021 last phase) and  year 2020. You can also see TUAS Extension will be ready by year 2015. It will give benefits for those who travel from Nusajaya, Iskandar Malaysia to Singapore via TUAS. - 10 December 2012

Do we have to look for properties located near by future MRT stations? It really depends on your needs and requirements.

Future MRT Line Plan

Government announced a future plan to enhance current MRT route by year 2030, hoping at least 80% of household can reach MRT station within 10 minutes. LTA has announced that there will be two new rail lines and three new extensions to double Singapore’s rail network to c.360km by 2030. A major MRT line, the 50km Cross Island Line (CRL) is targeted to be completed by 2030, while the 20km long Jurong Region Line (JRL) is expected to be completed by 2025.

New rail lines:
• 50km Cross Island Line (CRL) will run from Changi, passing through Loyang, Pasir Ris, Hougang, Ang Mo Kio, Sin Ming, and head westwards towards Bukit Timah, Clementi, West Coast, and terminate at Jurong Industrial Estate. Targeted to be completed by 2030.
• 20km Jurong Region Line (JRL) will serve Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay and future developments in the Tengah area. It will connect these areas to nodes in Jurong West and the Jurong Industrial estate. Expected to be completed by 2025.

• 4km Circle Line Stage 6 (CCL 6) will ‘close the circle’ by connecting HarbourFront station to Marina Bay station, expected to be completed by 2025.
• 2km extension of Downtown Line to the Eastern Region Line by 2025 to connect the two rail lines and allow commuters to make transfers.
• 2km North East Line (NEL) will extend northwards by one station to serve Punggol North by c.2030.

Let us see the plan below:
