- The Thomson Line is Singapore’s sixth Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) line
- Fully underground, it will run along Singapore’s North-South corridor
The construction of the Thomson Line (TSL) is part of Singapore’s plans to develop a comprehensive rail network system to meet future travel needs.
There are plans for the line to interchange with the North-South Line at the existing Woodlands MRT station and also for the proposed Rapid Transit System (RTS) Link between Singapore and Johor Bahru to integrate with the TSL at the northernmost terminal station.
TSL will be the first ever large-scale project in Singapore to utilise Geographic Information Systems (GIS) technology. The result is a visual and interactive representation of the TSL project that provides instant accessibility to the multidisciplinary project team via a secure web portal. Any data collected in the field can be instantly uploaded from any smart phone or similar device, allowing instant access to all users.
