SINGAPORE: Singapore's sixth MRT Line -- the Thomson Line (TSL) -- will open from 2019, instead of the indicative timeline of 2018 announced in the Land Transport Master Plan.

Pearl's Centre in Eu Tong Sen Street, a post office along Upper Thomson Road and two landed properties along Stevens Road and Robin Close will be affected by land acquisition.

Minister for Transport Lui Tuck Yew, who gave an update on the Thomson Line on Wednesday, said the change in timeline is to accommodate some adjustments made to the original plan.

Under the final rail alignment plan of the Land Transport Authority (LTA), the TSL will be longer and have more stations.

It will be 30 kilometres long -- 3 kilometres longer than envisaged -- and have 22 stations, four more than originally planned.

TSL will run from Woodlands in the north to Marina Bay in the south and is expected to be built at estimated cost of around S$18 billion.

It is expected to have daily ridership of 400,000 commuters.

Six of the 22 stations will be interchanges, enabling commuters to reach their destinations in the shortest possible time.

For example, a resident of Sin Ming travelling to Republic Polytechnic in Woodlands will half his or her commute time from 50 minutes to 25 minutes.

With six interchange stations, the TSL will connect to all existing lines and the future Downtown Line (DTL).

TSL will connect to the North South Line at Woodlands and Orchard stations.

Caldecott Station will connect to the Circle Line.

Residents of the Bukit Timah stretch can change trains at the future DTL Stevens Station to connect to the TSL.

The Outram Park Station will connect the TSL to the East West Line and North East Line, while the Marina Bay Station will connect the TSL to the North South Line and Circle Line.

TSL will open in three stages from the north to the south.

Phase One, which will have three stations from Woodlands North to Woodlands South, will open in 2019.

Phase Two will be ready in 2020, with stations from Springleaf to Caldecott.

The final stretch of 13 stations from Mount Pleasant to Gardens by the Bay will open in 2021.

The line will also be a four-car system, instead of a three-car system.

Mr Lui said this will give it additional capacity to cope with any increase in long-term demand.

He was speaking during a visit to Telok Ayer Station of Downtown Line One.

LTA, Singapore Land Authority (SLA) and the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said in a joint statement that while all efforts have been made to minimise land acquisition, the government will acquire four full lots.

They include Pearl's Centre in Eu Tong Sen Street, a post office along Upper Thomson Road and two landed properties along Stevens Road and Robin Close.

Pearl's Centre will be affected by the construction of the TSL as a tunnel will run under part of the building.

To optimise land use around the future TSL station at Outram Park, Pearl's Centre will be acquired and integrated with the adjoining state land for a high-density mixed-use development.

Five other part lots will also be acquired but will not affect the main building structure.

The SLA gazetted the land affected by acquisition on Wednesday.

Whoa, Thomson so big meh? biggrin.gif

Will Sgp sink? Build so many infrastructure and dig so many tunnels on a little island. We will literally become Sinkies. LOL...

But on a serious note, I hope they cater for big enough fleet of buses in case of breakdowns.
Too much to think about...

COE will surely be more than 100k by then!

Everytime when a new MRT line is going to open, COE prices will also shoot up. DTL opening next year, so in my opinion, this upward trend will continue. Of course, there will be fluctuations here and there but it will still be a overall increase.
