What is the Cross Island Line?
Spanning across Singapore, the Cross Island Line (CRL) is approximately 50km in length and is targeted to complete by around 2030.
Where is the Cross Island Line?
Starting from Changi, the CRL will pass through Loyang, Pasir Ris, Hougang, Ang Mo Kio, before reaching Sin Ming. Continuing westwards, it will serve areas such as Bukit Timah, Clementi, West Coast, and terminate at Jurong Industrial Estate.
How will commuters benefit from the Cross Island Line?
It will provide commuters with another alternative for East-West travel to the current East-West Line, bringing greater comfort and significantly shorter journey times. The eastern leg of the CRL will also include a segment that extends into the centre of Punggol. Residents in Punggol will be able to travel to Pasir Ris – a popular and much demanded travel route - in only 10-15 minutes, compared to a 40 minute bus journey today.
