Are you referring to the Seletar line or the North Shore Line? I asked because these 2 lines are still part of the concept plan. It probably won't be ready by 2020 unless otherwise stated by the LTA. Anyway, nice pics of Esplanade station, mrtdude5. Got anymore pics of the other stations in the circle line?

Must Singapore and Hong Kong have the best transport? I'm quite jealous. I asked this on the other MRT thread but it seems inactive: do SMRT or SBS (or even LTA) release individual station ridership numbers? There are some unsourced numbers on Wikipedia that look quite suspect and estimated.

Hmm, regarding that I am not too sure. Usually, the government through the LTA would announce the passenger numbers for the year. So, I guess the place you can check is the LTA website. I am just guessing. Hope it helps.

$60b boost for MRT network
http://www.straitstimes.com/Breaking...ry_572665.html

THE Government is spending $60 billion over the next 10 years on improvements to the rail network to ease congestion.

A major part of the expense will go towards doubling the network to 280km, with three new lines.

The new lines are the Downtown Line which will bring residents from Bukit Timah and the East Coast downtown, the Thomson Line which runs from Sembawang southwards, and the Eastern Region Line, which will go through Marine Parade.

Giving this update yesterday, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong assured Singaporeans that the authorities have studied the crunch on existing lines.

He gave an update on steps the Land Transport Authority and transport operators have taken to improve service, including upgrading stations and signalling systems, saying these will take time.

'We are doing everything possible to improve matters. I hope Singaporeans will understand, be patient,' he said.

$0.66 would be if you're using the EZ-Link card, which offers a slight discount compared to paying by cash or for a single trip ticket on the rail lines. That encourages public transport usage, along with a form of congestion charge in the CBD area that car owners have to pay. Couple that with expensive parking, public transport that is accessible and organised is very appealing. Plus the fact that you get that discount when you use your stored value card on trains and buses.

It will still be quite a fantasy after the new lines are built. I do not know whether we need to go to such an extend to expand the network like that. =)

For example in the future, there will be about 6 stations, and 3 lines to choose from for anyone at Marina Bay. all within 5-10 mins walk.

In time, there would still be a need to build more lines to reach every part of Singapore that is populated. Right now, our population has hit the 5 million mark. We already know that the Eastern Region Line ad Thomson Line is coming up in the future, just the matter of when and where. We will never see other other new lines until 2020 at best.

Why is one of the stations (on the future map...) called Canberra?

Well, there is a road in that area called Canberra Road. There is also a road called Wellington Circle. I guess it is the legacy of the ANZAC troops that lived in the area in World War 2.

A number of things are similar too between the countries - you guys even use the same buttons and symbols at pedestrian crossings as Australia/New Zealand (except your signals flash green like Britain/Europe rather than red like Aus/NZ/USA for "don't start to cross").

That's just lines that are fantasy, but there are also fantasy stations on that map too. For instance, stations on the Eastern Region Line, Thomson Line have not been announced. The Circle Line stops at HarbourFront and does not link directly to Marina Bay from HarbourFront, only from Promenade. The Downtown Line beyond Bukit Panjang is also fantasy as no such extension has been made public yet. Punggol LRT has a northern spur, but documents only show for up to 4 stations currently. Even then, these may not be built in the near future at all.

The Jurong Region Line has been put on hold for now as LRT is not a favourable option. Currently, the East West Line terminates at Pasir Ris, Joo Koon and Changi Airport. Tuas West extension will comprise of 4 new stations which have not been named (EW30 through EW33), Tuas South extension will branch from EW30 and anything beyond Changi Airport is speculation.

On the other hand, the North Coast Line, Holland Line and Seletar Line have been mentioned in the last concept plan from 2001 I believe. A new one is due in 2011 and may indicate better future lines. North Coast/Shore Line has provisions made at Punggol station as mentioned by the media. Plans also change as tenders for new stations have indicated recently.

I believe that this is the working name for one of the few in-fill stations on existing lines. The others being NE2 Kampung Bahru and NS6 Sungei Kadut.

Thanks for the compliments. Hmm, it seems that this thread is a little dead. I would be quoting some pics from a thread in the Singapore Skyscraper forum. It is some design plans for a new station in Little India for the Downtown Line. I hope mrtfreak doesn't mind.....

Here is the updated MRT map from LTA website. Station names may subject to changes in the future but the lines should be confirmed.
