SMRT Thomson East Coast Line Pte Ltd was incorporated in 2017 to operationalise the new Thomson East Line which is scheduled to be open in stages from 2019. The Thomson East Coast Line (TEL) will span 43km and add 31 new stations to the existing rail network, with seven interchange stations linking the TEL to all five existing MRT lines. Besides enhancing connectivity between the north, central and eastern parts of Singapore, the TEL will strengthen the resilience of our rail network by providing alternative travel routes for commuters on other lines. Commuters can start enjoying the TEL in stages from 2019. When fully operational in 2024, the TEL is expected to serve approximately 500,000 commuters daily in the initial years, with the figure rising to about one million commuters in the longer term. The TEL is Singapore’s most complex rail project to date. Other than the multi-stage openings, the TEL will also interchange with the future Johor Bahru-Singapore Rapid Transit System Link on its northern end and feature a possible future connection to Changi Airport on its eastern end.
