Cross Island Line 1: New Links by 2029

1.       The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has announced the alignment and station locations for Phase 1 of the Cross Island Line (CRL) today.

2.       The CRL is our eighth MRT line, and our longest fully underground line. When fully completed, it will serve existing and future developments in the eastern, western, and north-eastern corridors, linking major hubs such as Changi Airport, Jurong Lake District, and Punggol Digital District. The projected daily ridership of the entire CRL is more than 600,000 in the initial years, increasing to over 1 million in the longer term.

3.       LTA will construct the CRL in three phases. Phase 1 of the CRL (CRL1) is 29 kilometres long, and comprises 12 stations from Aviation Park to Bright Hill, serving residential and industrial areas in Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North and Ang Mo Kio. More than 100,000 households will benefit from CRL1, and common recreational spaces such as Changi Beach Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park will also become more accessible by public transport. Construction for CRL1 is expected to commence in 2020 and be completed by 2029.

4.       To facilitate the construction of CRL1 and associated road works, eight properties will be partially acquired by the Government. These acquisitions only involve ancillary features such as green verges, boundary walls and subterranean space. Existing buildings will not be affected.

5.       The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has gazetted the acquisition of the affected land today. SLA will work closely with the affected landowners and assist them through the acquisition process.

6.       The notification of the land and subterranean space affected by the acquisition has been published in the Gazette on 25 Jan 2019.  The Gazette Notification No. 185 dated 27 Dec 2018 may be found online at www.egazette.com.sg. The affected private properties are listed below:
