I guess this was the original alignment of the Boon Lay MRT Extension:



Personally, I do not think there is a need for Cross Island Line to interchange at any of the Tuas West MRT Extension. We can always have a terminal station near the alignment of the Tuas West MRT extension, while the over-run track runs along the EWL track.

When JLD is more developed, I reckon many commuters travelling to Singapore on Causeway Link buses might prefer to stop at Jurong East instead of Tuas. either for work or leisure

I don't proclaim to know everything, but it appears that most commuters who take the Causeway Link buses to/from Jurong East and Boon Lay, are not the demographic who might work in Tuas by virtue of the communities that these routes serve, i.e. Bukit Indah and Gelang Patah. Many appear to be non-managerial white collars and F&B/retail staff. The Jurong East bound services, via the AYE, allows for significant time savings which I feel, might be lost than taking the MRT all the way to Tuas Link.

Hence, until I really see it, I don't think CW will reroute to the frontier, I still think they might add, but not reduce. If anything, it's against the agreed liberalization of cross-border services.

I am guessing that most blue collar workers from Malaysia usually travel to Singapore by motorcycles as their working hour usually begin before 8am. Those travel by bus are likely to be those white collar workers, students etc.

So ideally, there should be 2 stops. One at Tuas Link (to avoid people having to back track to Tuas) and the other at Jurong East where they can easily connect to different parts of western region either for work or schools.

I wonder why they shifted part of the line north though.

I think the current alignment is better as it allows a provision for Tuas South extension.

Jurong regional line

Joo koon station will link up with CCK station via Tengah, for Jurong regional line based on the Land transport master plan 2013 by LTA.

Whatever is drawn and shown in that plan, is not drawn to scale and are not official information as of yet. The plan you see, is a really terribly drawn plan.

Yes, it is speculative and the plan may change. The plan does fit into the rendering of Tengah new town posted by others earlier.

Spotted many SI activities around West Coast Road over the past 2 to 3 months. Not sure if this is related to JRL
