SINGAPORE - The Land Transport Authority (LTA) is studying a possible extension of the planned Jurong Region Line (JRL) to connect to the Circle Line (CCL), to improve rail connectivity between the western parts of Singapore and the city centre.

This will also support future developments in the west, and enhance the overall resilience of the rail network, Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew said on Tuesday.

LTA will study extending the JRL to the CCL through a West Coast Extension (WCE) with possibly new stations in the West Coast and Pasir Panjang area. Should it be found feasible, the extension is expected to be completed around 2030.
