The Government will be constructing the Jurong Region Line (JRL) to enhance connectivity in the western part of Singapore. To facilitate the construction of the JRL and associated road works, the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has gazetted the acquisition of 19 part-lots of land and 4 pockets of air space. These mainly consist of ancillary features such as green verges, boundary walls and fencing, in addition to Block 303 Choa Chu Kang Ave 4, a HDB multi-storey car park with commercial units at the first storey. SLA will work closely with the affected landowners to assist them through the acquisition process.
First announced in the Land Transport Master Plan 2013, the 24-kilometre long JRL is an elevated MRT line which will serve areas in the western part of Singapore that currently do not have direct links to the rail network such as NTU, Jurong Industrial Estate, Jurong Innovation District, Pandan Reservoir and the future Tengah area. It will feature 24 stations, including three interchange stations at Boon Lay, Choa Chu Kang and Jurong East MRT stations.
The JRL will open in three stages, starting from 2026:
a. Phase 1 (2026): JRL (West) comprises ten stations linking Choa Chu Kang to Boon Lay and Tawas;
b. Phase 2 (2027): JRL (East) comprises seven stations providing connection between Tengah and
Pandan Reservoir; and
c. Phase 3 (2028): Extensions into NTU in the west and Jurong Pier in the south, completing the JRL
