Jurong Region Line
The Jurong Region Line (JRL) is Singapore’s seventh MRT line, serving both existing and future development in the western part of Singapore. It will significantly improve connectivity of the region and support the development of the Jurong area, which is set to be the largest commercial hub outside the Central Business District. Commuters can expect to be connected to key activity nodes in Jurong, such as the Jurong Industrial Estate, Jurong Innovation District, and the Nanyang Technological University (NTU).
The JRL will put 60,000 more households in Jurong within a 10-minute walk from a train station. With three interchange stations bringing more connectivity to the existing rail network, commuters will enjoy more alternative routes of travel.
In light of COVID-19-induced factors such as a general manpower crunch due to border closures and materials supply disruptions, the completion timelines for a number of LTA projects have been delayed up to a year. The revised rail completion and opening timelines are being finalised and updates will be issued in due course.
LTA has awarded a contract for the supply of 62 fully-automated and driverless car trains for the JRL. The first train is expected to arrive in Singapore around mid-2024.
LTA is calling for the public’s feedback on the interior features of our Jurong Region Line train. Share your views with us through this survey link (go.gov.sg/JRLTrainSurvey). The survey closes on 20 August 2021, 2359hrs.

Number of stations
Length of line
There will be 62 fully-automated, driverless three-car trains that can be expanded to four-cars as commuter demand increases. These car trains feature:
- Smaller, customised carriages enabling the train to easily navigate and manoeuvre through tight curves and built-up areas along the JRL track
- Carriages with wider doors and spaces for wheelchair users and strollers which will make rides more accessible and comfortable for commuters
- Improved condition monitoring and diagnostic systems that monitor train health and detect rail defects and faults
The JRL will be an elevated line with 24 stations, including three interchange stations at Boon Lay, Choa Chu Kang and Jurong East MRT stations*.
