The Singapore Rail Test Centre (SRTC), located at Tuas, is the first railway testing facility in Southeast Asia. Previously known as the Integrated Train Testing Centre (ITTC), it is modelled after overseas testing centres with similar extensive rail networks.
The SRTC plays a pivotal role in LTA’s ongoing efforts to renew, upgrade and expand the rail network. Occupying a site of approximately 50 hectares, it sits on the former Raffles Country Club. This new dedicated facility is designed to allow rigorous testing and commissioning of trains and other core railways systems for both new and existing rail lines.
Upon full completion, the SRTC will serve as a comprehensive testing platform for train systems before they are deployed on the main line, as well as with other railway systems including signalling, communications, power supply and integrated supervisory control systems.
