Downtown Line To Use New Rail Financing Framework Version 2 From 2022

The Downtown Line (DTL) will transit to version two of the New Rail Financing Framework (NRFF) from Jan 1, 2022, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Thursday (Nov 11).

This comes after a financial sustainability review conducted by both the LTA and transport operator SBS Transit (SBST).

The DTL has been using the first version of the NRFF since 2011, while the majority of other train lines used the updated framework between 2016 and 2018 onwards.
