About the JRL

10.     The JRL is Singapore’s seventh MRT line and will open from 2027 onwards, in three stages. It will improve connectivity in the western part of Singapore by establishing direct links to NTU, Jurong Industrial Estate, Jurong Innovation District, Pandan Reservoir and the future Tengah area. For instance, commuters travelling from the north will be able to access the Jurong region directly through the JRL interchange at Choa Chu Kang MRT station, without having to transfer at Jurong East MRT station.
