Jurong Region Line

Enhancing Connectivity in the West


The Jurong Region Line (JRL) is Singapore‚Äôs 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.

LTA has awarded the civil contract to design and construct the Jurong West and Bahar Junction stations* and their associated viaducts.

Civil contracts for the following JRL stations*, Choa Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang West, Tengah, Hong Kah and Corporation and their associated viaducts have also been awarded in September 2019.

Construction works for these stations are expected to start in 2020 and are slated for completion in 2026.

The line will use smaller train cars for better navigation along its route through tighter curves in areas constrained by existing developments in a built-up area. The JRL will use three-car trains that can be expanded to four-cars to meet increases in ridership.


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*.
