Jurong Region Line

The Jurong Region Line will be the seventh line to be introduced into the MRT system. The line is designed to be a medium capacity line.

It will be a fully automated and driverless elevated rapid transit line. When completed, it will span about 20km with around 30 stations. The line will be opening in two stages, in 2025 and 2026.

It will serve residents of Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay and the future developments in the Tengah area, and connect high-activity areas in Jurong West, such as Nanyang Technological University, the Jurong Industrial estate, including Jurong Island and the future Jurong Gateway.

A West Coast Extension to connect to the Circle Line is currently under study. If it is found feasible, the extension of about 5km will be completed by 2030.

LINE STATUS (4 APRIL 2016): Engineering feasibility studies is currently being conducted on the line. The exact alignment and stations of the line will be announced in 2017.
