Why government hate the west so much?

 

I really thought the next line will be serving the west to city.

North South Line

 

NSL will have 2 new stations, Brickland and Sungei Kadut. The new Brickland station will be located between CCK and Bukit Gombak stations. It will benefit people living in Keat Hong, Bukit Batok West and Pavilion Park, as well the Brickland district in the upcoming Tengah town.

 

The new Sungei Kadut station will be located between Yew Tee and Kranji stations. It will be an interchange station that will also connect to the Downtown Line (DTL). LTA explained that this will be achieved by extending the DTL beyond Bukit Panjang station to serve Yew Tee and Choa Chu Kang.
 

The 2 stations will be ready by mid-2030.

 

Thomson East Coast Line

 

TEL will extended to serve the upcoming Changi Airport Terminal 5, as well as a new Sungei Bedok station. Set to be completed by 2040, the stretch between Tanah Merah and Changi Airport, which is currently on the East-West Line, will be converted to the TEL.

The LTA also announced a feasibility study to assess whether a new rail line should be built to supplement transport options in the north and northeast regions, and connect these regions to the south.

This line would connect the upcoming Woodlands North Coast residential development to the Greater Southern Waterfront, which takes over the site of the Pasir Panjang and City port terminals, possibly serving residents in Sembawang, Sengkang, Serangoon North, Whampoa and Kallang along the way.

This line could also link the new Seletar Airport passenger terminal to the MRT network, adding much needed public transport options to and from the airport, although concrete plans have not been made as yet.

The study is set to begin sometime soon and will take at least a year to be completed.

If the new line gets the go-ahead, there is a chance it could be operational as soon as 2040.

Measuring roughly 30km, it would also bring the total length of the rail network here close to 400km by the time it is completed.

LTA will assess the demand, station locations and implementation timeline of the line, as well as whether it will be feasible for it to pass through the Lower Seletar Reservoir.

When completed, the line could serve more than 400,000 households and commuters in the northern region would have their travel time to the city centre cut by 40 minutes, the report added.
