Cross Island Line Phase 1 construction

Construction on CRL1 Bright Hill station is planned to begin in the second quarter of this year, with passenger service beginning in 2030. The bright Hill station is located along Sin Ming Avenue, on primarily Bukit Timah Granite land. Tunnel boring machines will need to be closely monitored to guarantee optimal performance, as the abrasive nature of the ground conditions is predicted to cause some wear to the cutting equipment.

Singapore’s eighth MRT line is the CRL. It will serve current and future developments in the eastern, north-eastern, and western corridors, connecting main centers like Jurong Lake District, Punggol Digital District, and Changi region. Almost half of the CRL’s stations will serve as interchanges with other rail lines.

CRL1 is 29 kilometres and has 12 stops from Aviation Park to Bright Hill. It will benefit over 100,000 houses in Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North, and Ang Mo Kio, as well as residential and industrial districts in Loyang, Tampines, Pasir Ris, Pasir Ris, Defu, Hougang, Serangoon North, and Ang Mo Kio. CRL1 would improve public transport connectivity to popular recreational areas such as Changi Beach Park and Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. The details of subsequent CRL phases are ongoing.
