The JRL is a major milestone in Singapore’s transport network, and will bring immense benefits to commuters and businesses in the west. When completed, the JRL will be the longest MRT line in Singapore, and will serve as an important link between the west and the city centre.
The Jurong Region Line (JRL) is Singapore’s newest Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line, connecting the west and north western areas of Singapore via 24 stations spread across three stages of development. The JRL is expected to be fully operational by 2026, making it the sixth MRT line in Singapore.
The first stage of the JRL is expected to be completed in 2026 and will cover the western side of Singapore, from Choa Chu Kang to Boon Lay and Jurong Industrial Estate, with 14 stations. The 15.4 km track will include two interchange stations, Choa Chu Kang and Boon Lay. The Choa Chu Kang Interchange will link to the North-South Line (NSL) and the Boon Lay Interchange will link to the East-West Line (EWL).
The second stage of the JRL, expected to be completed in 2027, will connect the north western part of Singapore and serve the areas of Hillview, Dairy Farm and Bukit Panjang. This stage will have an additional 10 stations, with an interchange station at Hillview, connecting to the Downtown Line (DTL).

The 24 stations of the JRL are spread across three stages of development and will serve the northern, western and south western areas of Singapore. The line will provide residents of the west and north western areas with easy access to the rest of Singapore, making travel between these areas and the city centre more convenient.
The JRL will also be an important part of the Jurong Lake District, where the Singapore Government is planning to develop a vibrant business, leisure and residential hub. When completed, the JRL will provide easy access to the many amenities in the Jurong Lake District, such as shopping malls, entertainment centres, parks and educational institutions.
Overall, the Jurong Region Line is an exciting development for Singapore that will make it easier for people to travel between the northern, western and south western areas of Singapore. It will also make the Jurong Lake District more accessible and convenient, and contribute to the development of a vibrant business, leisure and residential hub in the region.
