The Circle line is long over due. Stage 1 started construction in 2001 and will be done by 2010. That's about 10 years. Nevertheless, the early opening is welcome. Stage 3 was predicted to have opened this year.

Here's a video of the Circle Line trains: http://www.straitstimes.com/Video%2B...cast_3483.html

Construction works on Downtown MRT line begin

By Christopher Tan

IN 12 years' time, Singapore residents should be able to get to every major residential and commercial centre across the island by hopping onto an MRT train.

At a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday morning to mark the start of construction works on the $12 billion 40km Downtown Line, Land Transport Authority chairman Michael Lim said Singapore's rail network would have doubled in length to 278km by 2020, 'comprehensive enough to support access to points across the island, supporting Singapore's vision for public transport as a choice mode of travel'.

The first stage of the Downtown Line is 4.3km and will have six stations: Chinatown, Cross Street, Landmark, Bayfront, Promenade and Bugis. When this stage is ready by 2013, commuters will have quick access to developments in Marina Bay, such as the Business Financial Centre and Sands Resort. The rest of the Downtown Line will be completed by 2016.

Mr Lim noted that the Downtown Line is but one of several new rail projects rolling out in the next decade or so. Others include the Thomson Line, and extensions to the North-south and East-west lines.

Together with projects that are ongoing today - such as the Circle Line and Boon Lay Extension - Singapore has committed $40b on new MRT lines.

'Despite the high volume of infrastructure projects taking place across the island, safety is a top priority for LTA throughout the construction process,' the chairman said.

He cited LTA's safety record in the last few years.

In 2003, it lost 252 man-days per million man-hours spent on its projects.

The following year, it hit a high of 1,049 man-days lost, when a Circle Line cave-in caused Nicoll Highway to collapse, killing four workers. But since then, man-days lost had fallen to 435 and 320 in 2005 and 2006 respectively.

Last year, it dropped to a low 49 man-days.

'Safety competence and professionalism are core values LTA regards highly,' Mr Lim added.

Wikipedia says there's 263 routes and 3448 buses but that subsection's last update was in December 07... Maybe someone here or here can give you an exact answer.

LTA unveils locations of DTL stage 2 stations

By Christopher Tan



THE locations of stations along Downtown Line Stage 2, a 16.6km stretch joining residents in Bukit Panjang and Bukit Timah to the city centre, were revealed on Tuesday.

The line, one of half a dozen new rail projects Singapore is embarking on up to 2020, will make stops near schools like Singapore Chinese Girls School, Raffles Girls Primary School, Hwa Chong Institution and National Junior College.

Several residential developments like the Equatorial, Blossomvale as well as the Housing Board heartland of Bukit Panjang will also have stations near them.

Starting from Singapore's downtown is the line's southern-most station of Rochor. North of this is the first of three interchanges, Little India station, which connects the North-east Line.

Next is Newton Interchange, near Singapore's most famous hawker centre; and then Stevens Station, under Stevens Road and a stone's throw from the Raffles Town Club.

After that comes the Botanic Gardens Station, which intersects with the Circle Line.

The line then moves through Singapore's most prestigious residential area, with stops near Duchess Avenue, Sixth Avenue (actually nearer to Fourth) and Blackmore (near King Albert Park).

In the vicinity are the Nissan and BMW showrooms.

From there, the line crosses over to the shop-and-dine hub of Beauty World, where a station will be located.

Stations north of Beauty World are Hillview (near Dairy Farm) and Cashew (near Assumption English School and St Joseph's Church).

Next, the Downtown Line links up with the Bukit Panjang LRT, at the Petir station.

The line terminates at Gali Batu Depot, which is to be sited on part of the Kwong Hou Sua Teochew Cemetery.

In all, there are 12 stations, of which three are interchanges (Little India, Newton and Botanic Gardens). As with the Circle Line, the Land Transport Authority will be asking the public to suggest permanent names for the other nine stations.

Stage 2 of Downtown Line is part of a $12 billion 40km project linking the north-western and eastern parts of Singapore to the new downtown. Major construction will start middle of next year.

Stage 1 is is where the Integrated Resort, Gardens by the Bay and new financial district are. Stage 3 goes through MacPherson, Bedok Reservoir and Tampines areas to end at the East-West Line's Expo Station.

The LTA, meanwhile, on Tuesday gave another progress report on the Circle Line. Stage 3, linking Bartley to Marymount, is on track to be the first portion of the orbital rail line to be opened in mid-2009.

The five stations along this stretch are expected to attain temporary occupation permits by end of this year.

Overall, about 90 per cent of tunnels of the 33km line are completed, with the rest by early next year.

MRT's Boon Lay extension to start operating from 28 Feb 2009
By Asha Popatlal, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 30 October 2008 1016 hrs


SINGAPORE: The Boon Lay extension of the Mass Rapid Transit system will start operating from February 28 next year.

The 3.8-kilometre stretch along the East-West Line will consist of two stations - Pioneer and Joo Koon.

The Land Transport Authority says this will benefit Jurong West residents as well as those working in the Jurong Industrial estate.

Their travelling time is expected to be cut by up to 15 minutes.

The extension will also give commuters direct access to the MRT system.

They currently have to make bus transfers at Boon Lay station.

$1.13b DTL contracts awarded

THE Land Transport Authority has awarded six contracts worth $1.13 billion for the Downtown Line.

The contracts, which will cover all three stages of the project, will include the procurement of trains and other electrical and mechanical systems.

Among the contracts is one awarded to the consortium of Bombardier Transportation GmbH / Bombardier (Singapore) for the procurement of 73 three-car electric trains at a cost of $570.7 million.

These trains will be fully automated and driverless. Such trains are being used for the North-East Line and will also be used for the upcoming Circle Line.

Another $287.5 million contract was awarded to Westinghouse Brake and Signal Holdings to provide the signalling system and platform screen doors at the stations, said LTA in a statement on Friday.

Singapore Technologies won the bid for the provision of integrated supervisory control system and for communications system. The two contracts are worth approximately $152 million in total.

Lifts will be provided by Otis Elevator Company in a contract worth $22.7 million; while escalators will be provided by Constructions Industrielles de la Mediterranee in a $100.3 million contract.

Mr Yam Ah Mee, LTA's Chief Executive said: 'With the award of these six DTL contracts, I am pleased that the progress of the project is on-time. We are looking forward to the completion of DTL1 in 2013.'

construction really seems to be in a much more advanced stage than at paya lebar. they also seem to have added more space to the station together with the circle line works, apparently to open their new buona vista exchange. and for crying out loud, there were even signs hung around proclaiming "buona vista exchange: coming soon"
