Actually LTA has the feedback from Jurong West residents and grassroots leaders. I was involved in the meeting with LTA planners along with Jurong GRC grassroot representatives and few MPs few years ago.

The feedback was that many want MRT line instead.

Sorry, but I wish to clarify that not all of Jurong West is in Jurong GRC. The part of Jurong West where Jurong Region Line runs in belongs to Chua Chu Kang GRC, Hong Kah North SMC and West Coast GRC.

In Jurong GRC, the part where Jurong Region Line would run in is at Jurong East.

well, be it MRT or LRT, it all depends on how's the projected demand like.

Based on the alignment at Jurong West - where there are limited space and sharp turns - I guess Jurong Region Line might be a MRT with LRT trains. A MRT car can contain around three times the number of people (~320) a LRT car can contain (~105). If Jurong Region Line is a medium capacity MRT line (three MRT train cars), it would require around nine LRT train cars coupled per set.

One LRT train car is around 11.84m. Since nine LRT cars are required, each set should be around 106.56m (11.84*9) long. Hence, the length of a JRL platform should be around 75% that of a EWL/NSL/NEL platform (since a 6-train MRT set is around 141.9m long).

During NTU vacation, we can simply couple less LRT train cars per set, on trains that ply the branch into NTU. Or have shuttle service between NTU and Gek Poh, while the Gek Poh-JIE section runs on regular service.

As mentioned previously, it just takes 4 cars (420 capacity) running at 2min frequency to meet 12,600pphd, 10,000pphd being the min. standard for an MRT line. You do not need 9 cars, that's an overkill.
