Completion of First Phase of the Singapore Rail Test Centre

News Releases 02 Nov 2023 Circle Line 6 (CCL6) Singapore Rail Test Centre (SRTC)

CCL6 Trains First To Be Tested

             The Land Transport Authority (LTA) today announced the completion of the first phase of the Singapore Rail Test Centre (SRTC), including the operationalisation of its high speed test track.

2.         Previously known as the Integrated Train Testing Centre, the SRTC is the first train testing facility in Southeast Asia. Occupying a site of approximately 50 hectares, the SRTC is fully equipped to conduct rigorous testing and commissioning of trains and other core railways systems for both new and existing rail lines.

3.         Phase One of the SRTC involved the construction of the high speed test track. The first two CCL6 trains are currently undergoing testing and commissioning works in SRTC. The second phase of SRTC involves the construction of the two other test tracks (a 3-kilometre endurance looped track and a 2.8-kilometre performance and integration looped track), as well as the three-storey Administration Building, Operations Control Centre Building, and the maintenance and refurbishment workshops. The SRTC is on track for completion in 2025.

4.         The SRTC will play a pivotal role in our ongoing efforts to renew, upgrade and expand the rail network. Upon completion, the SRTC will serve as a comprehensive testing platform for multiple railway systems before they are deployed on the main lines, including signalling, communications, power and integrated supervisory control systems. This will facilitate round-the-clock testing and free up limited engineering hours on operational lines for other works like maintenance and systems renewal; ultimately strengthening the reliability of our rail network, to the benefit of all rail commuters.

5.         The SRTC is designed to BCA’s Green Mark Platinum Certification, with energy saving equipment incorporated into its design and operations. These include features such as LED lighting, solar panels and a hybrid cooling system. To promote sustainable mobility within the facility and to encourage walking and cycling, bicycle parking lots and sheltered linkways will also be provided.
