Cross Island Line

Connecting across the island

This is a map of the existing rail lines

Enjoy faster travel from Changi to Jurong via key transport hubs on the Cross Island Line (CRL).

It will connect key employment areas such as Changi Logistics Park, Jurong Industrial Estate to residential estates such as Pasir Ris, Ang Mo Kio and Clementi.

When operational, it will have the highest number of interchange stations, with almost half the stations on the line being linked to existing rail stations. This means more alternative travel routes to get to your destination.

Constructed in three phases, the 29km long Phase 1 of the CRL (CRL1) will comprise 12 stations from Aviation Park to Bright Hill. This will serve residential and industrial areas such as Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North and Ang Mo Kio. More than 100,000 households will benefit from CRL1, and common recreational spaces such as Changi Beach Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park will also become accessible by public transport. Construction for CRL1 is expected to commence in 2020 and be completed by 2029.

The Government is currently studying two underground alignments in the vicinity of Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR) to decide on the option that best serves the public.

No decision has been made yet on which of these two alignments to pursue. Extensive consultations are being held to consider all views and issues, including the environmental impact, length of commute, engineering feasibility, disruptions to businesses and families, as well as the cost to taxpayers. With the completion of the Phase 2 EIA, LTA gazetted the EIA Report on 3 September 2019.  Based on the EIA, both alignment options are feasible. No decision on the alignment option has been made, and this report does not recommend a preferred alignment option. This gazette allows public viewing and feedback on the findings of the Report.  Click here to read more on the Gazette.
