Singapore new project Cross Island Line Timlines are delay due to covid-19 effected
Cross Island Line Update News
In light of COVID-19-induced factors such as a general manpower crunch due to border closures and materials supply disruptions, the completion timelines for a number of LTA projects have been delayed up to a year. The revised rail completion and opening timelines are being finalised and updates will be issued in due course.
To bring greater accessibility and better rail connectivity across the island, we will be building the Cross Island Line (CRL) – Punggol Extension, which connects Pasir Ris to Punggol. The 7.3-kilometres extension will provide a direct link for commuters travelling between eastern areas such as Pasir Ris and Tampines North and north-eastern areas such as Punggol and Sengkang.
The Punggol extension will consist of four fully-underground stations namely Punggol, Riviera, Elias and Pasir Ris.
Three of the four stations are interchanges, which will shorten travel times and provide alternative travel options for commuters.
