SINGAPORE - National water agency PUB plans to lay a new water main under the southern half of the Rail Corridor to meet future water demand in the city area.

About half of the 22km pipeline from Murnane Reservoir in Bukit Timah to Maxwell Road, will be beneath the former Keretapi Tanah Melayu railway line, which has lain vacant after train service from Tanjong Pagar to Woodlands ceased in 2011.

The project is expected to cost roughly $300 million, depending on tender results.

Construction work on the pipeline will last from 2016 to 2019 and some sections of the corridor will be closed to the public temporarily.
