Facebook user Tawfik Daud on 17 March unmasked MRT’s ‘secret’ that 3 more stations are coming to the MRT’s west line. The west line currently ends in the Joo Koon station. But the user noticing that the Joo Koon station had been plastered over in the train’s signboard, peeled it over – revealing the 3 new stations.

The secret is out.

Tawfik’s post has gone viral with over 1,700 shares. But the 3 new lines are not really a ‘secret’. In 2015, LTA announced that the Tuas West Extension (TWE) will extend the East – West Line from Joo Koon stations. LTA added that the MRT extension is expected to carry 100,000 commuters a day to Tuas, an area currently not well served by public transport.

The 7.5km extension will comprise of four above ground stations and a twin tracked viaduct. The stations – Gul Circle, Tuas Crescent, Tuas West and Tuas Link – will improve the MRT connectivity that is currently lacking in the Tuas area.

LTA also promised that commuters to the Tuas area can also look forward to savings in travelling time by up to 35 minutes.

In addition, a road viaduct that is integrated with the rail extension will be constructed to provide motorists with an alternative to busy Pioneer Road. The 4.8km long dual 3-lane viaduct will run along Pioneer Road to join Tuas South Avenue 3. This will be the first twin-tier viaduct in Singapore which will help relieve some of the heavy traffic in the Tuas area.Follow us on Social Media
