*Station names are working names
By connecting the Downtown Line, East-West Line and Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), commuters will have more travel options within the rail network. A commuter who lives along the corridor of the TEL will be able to access key employment nodes along the Downtown Line 3 corridor in a single train ride. The Downtown Line 3 Extension also brings direct connectivity along the corridor it serves. Residents in Marine Parade will be able to travel to Tampines in about 25 minutes by rail, compared to more than 40 minutes by bus currently.
