Soil investigation works spotted along Jurong West St 64 since this morning. Here are two of the drilling stations located along street 64.

I saw a rig around St 64 and boon lay way junction last week and I also notice some LTA road works going on around the section of boon lay way.

Saw Soil Investigation equipments at Jurong West Central 1 (near blk 686), Jurong West Street 64 (near blk 684) and Jurong West Avenue 5 (near blk 861/860). With sightings of Soil Investigation equipments spotted at this part of Jurong West - instead of at Jalan Boon Lay and Jalan Bahar - I believe this section (Boon Lay MRT to NTU) of Jurong Region Line will be an elevated LRT.

Reason is because this part does not seem to have space to divert road for underground MRT, and the corridors in this part seem narrow and restricted for MRT tracks.

My prediction:
Boon Lay MRT to NTU - LRT
Jurong West to Choa Chu Kang - MRT
Tengah to West Coast - MRT
Boon Lay MRT to Jurong Hill/Jurong Pier - LRT

If it is LRT, construction to commission should be within three and a half years (based on Bukit Panjang LRT), from around 2017 to around mid-2020, which means the Boon Lay MRT to NTU section could start service at as early as around mid-2020.

Anyway, whether it is 2020 or 2025, it is still a long wait before Jurong Region Line starts operations. By then, I am not sure if I will still be staying in Jurong West, or if I will relocate to stay elsewhere. :/

There is a SI rig along Jalan Boon Lay, near enterprise road.

I think I saw some soil investigation at Jurong East Central, at the plot of empty land next to MRT track at Jurong East Avenue 1.

Actually, the Jurong East-Teban Gardens section could have been an extension to North South Line. By being part of Jurong Region Line instead, this may be a strong indication that JRL is a Light Rail Transit.

LRT doesnt have the capacity for JLD development plan, and LTA will also need to factor in Tengah township as well potential HSR at JLD.

There are confirmations that JLD will likely be an elevated system with 4 car trainsets, each car equivalent to the ones used for the LRT. Assuming 105 pax capacity per car, each trainset will have a capacity of 420.

Assuming that the system will run at an initial 2.5min peak headway, this works out to 10,080pphd, which puts it under the categorisation of a medium capacity MRT line. The signalling system may be future proofed for 1.8min peak headway after a significant portion of Tengah New Town is completed (max 14,000pphd). Such a system will be able to move 35% of the Year 2030 population (50% of targeted DUs) of Tengah in both directions within an hour. By 2040 when the town is matured, hopefully the public transport system will be supplemented by HLL.

Why not 2-car MRT trains, with provision to add a 3rd car should the need arise?

perhaps turning radius?

I would have thought that JRL will be a mixture of both elevated and underground.

Supplemented by HLL? Does that mean the JRL will not be part of a a future longer line that runs to the city?

Btw, what is a medium capacity MRT line if the train is actually like those Mickey mouse LRT trains?

Capacity is dictated by the whole, not just by the size of the rolling stock. Moscow and Paris carry a lot more people an hour than Singapore does despite their trains being far smaller.
