The Land Transport Authority (LTA) will construct a new Integrated Train Testing Centre (ITTC) to perform integrated systems testing for all new and existing MRT lines. Occupying a site of approximately 50 hectares at the former Raffles Country Club site, the ITTC will be equipped to robustly test trains and other core railways systems (e.g. electrical, mechanical and signalling systems) around the clock, without affecting passenger services on the main lines. This is similar to testing centres in other countries with extensive rail networks, such as Germany, Korea and Japan. For more details, kindly refer to the attached news release.
