The CRL will include one new terminus in the East for CRL1, and 11 possible stations in the West serving Bukit Timah, Clementi and West Coast and Tuas, as seen in a train network map that has since been removed.


New terminus in the East for CRL1

The map showed a new terminus station for CRL1 in the East, possibly located at the future Changi Airport Terminal 5.

CR 1 TE 32 Terminal 5 [1]

This station also appears to be an interchange linking to a future extension on the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL).

Four stations in the West slated to be interchanges

Four stations in the West are also slated to be interchanges with other train lines.

CR 15 DT 6 King Albert Park

CR 17 EW 23 Clementi

CR 21 JS 12 Jurong Pier

CR 24 EW 30 Gul Circle

These four stations would allow the CRL to connect with the Downtown Line (DTL), East-West Line (EWL) and the upcoming Jurong Region Line (JRL).

Conceptual alignments not yet finalised

In response to queries by The Straits Times on Tuesday (Dec 7), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said the station alignments for the remaining two phases of the CRL are “conceptual alignments” that have not been finalised.

It added that the interchange stations are indicative in nature and subject to detailed engineering studies that take into account localised factors, such as land availability and ground conditions.

The CRL would be Singapore’s eighth MRT line, connecting the country’s major hubs such as Jurong Lake District, Punggol Digital District and Changi.

When fully completed, it will be the country’s longest fully underground MRT line, serving existing and future developments in the eastern, north-eastern and western corridors.

Footnote
[1] – CR1/TE32 station had not been named according to the train network map that has since been removed. With that, based on the implication by The Straits Times article that it is “likely to be located at the future Changi Airport Terminal 5,” ‘Terminal 5’ is thus a speculative naming of the station by the editor.
