Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has revealed more details of the North-South Line (NSL) Brickland station. Design and construction works on the project are expected to commence in 2024, with completion scheduled for 2034.
First announced as part of the Land Transport Masterplan 2040, the new Brickland station will be located between Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Gombak stations. This will be the third MRT station in Singapore to be built on an existing elevated rail line after Canberra (NSL) and Dover (East-West Line).
In addition to the station, a new viaduct and crossover tracks will be constructed, to maintain connections for the existing NSL tracks while modification works are being carried out. This will minimise disruptions to train operations between Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Gombak stations.
When completed, the Brickland station will help commuters in the area save up to 15 minutes in travel time towards the city centre and the commercial hub in Jurong Lake District. It will provide better MRT connectivity to residents in Keat Hong, Bukit Batok West, Pavilion Park and Tengah town’s Brickland district.
The new station will also serve existing educational institutions in the vicinity, such as ITE College West, Swiss Cottage Secondary School and St. Anthony’s Primary School by providing more direct access to the rail network.
