Whampoa New MRT Line for Verticus Condominium
A proposed new line has been identified for feasibility studies. This new line will supplement the transport network in the north and northeast regions to serve new and growing developments as well as existing towns which currently do not enjoy direct access to
the rail network. The corridor served by the new line could include areas such as Woodlands, Sembawang, Sengkang, Serangoon North, Whampoa, Kallang and the Greater Southern Waterfront. The line could also relieve increasing travel demand along the northeast corridor, and strengthen the overall resilience of the MRT network. This would help to make rail a faster, more convenient and more reliable transport option for more Singaporeans. As part of the feasibility study, we will assess the demand, alignment, station locations and implementation timeline of the line, taking into account existing and future land use developments along the corridor. When completed in phases, the line could serve more than 400,000 households, with commuters in the northern region of Singapore enjoying time savings of up to 40 minutes to the city centre.
