The JRL will put 60,000 more households in Jurong within a 10-minute walk from a train station.

Its completion will also serve areas that do not have direct links to the rail network, such as the Nanyang Technological University (NTU), Jurong Industrial Estate, Jurong Innovation District, Pandan Reservoir and the future Tengah area.

The final stage of its constriction was initially set to be completed in 2028, but the Covid-19 pandemic has delayed the project for up to a year.
