Singapore MRT Map

Overview of Singapore MRT Map

In this present year, the Singapore MRT Map consist of 91 stations which includes five different routes. The five colored lines are Red, Green, Purple, Yellow and Blue. Some of this color are represented by different cardinal directions. Such as:

Red represents North-South Line

However, there are two colors which are not represented by the cardinal directions which are..

Blue also known as the Downtown Line

Yellow also known as the  Circle Line

With the different colors routes that the Land Transport Authority (LTA) have designated, it makes passengers or travelers so much easier to find the stations that they are looking for.

Our Singapore MRT Map is unique as it have stations that are merged with different routes.

What do we mean by that? This means that passengers or travelers are able to transfer from one station to the other so that they are one step nearer to their destination. With the different stations that are transferrable, it will definitely result in saving the traveling time for all.

For example, if you would like to travel from Tampines station to Dhoby Ghaut station, you are able to transfer train from the Green to the Red course of the Singapore MRT Map.

Another example will be if you would like to travel from Bedok station to Serangoon station, you are able to transfer your ride from Paya Lebar station then to Serangoon station.

For the above examples, the Dhoby Ghaut station and Serangoon station, they are stations that are merged with different color lines in the Singapore MRT Map.

Dhoby Ghuat Station consist of Red, Yellow and Purple Line which is also known as the North-South, Circle and North-East Line in the MRT Map.

As for the Serangoon station, it consist of both the Yellow and Purple Line which is also known as the Circle and North-East course in the MRT Map.

The North-East Line starts to develop the first planning of the MRT construction starting from Toa Payoh until Yio Chu Kang and second further planning being extended until Raffles Place from Toa Payoh onwards to both Khatib and Yishun from Yio Chu Kang starting from 1980s. The East-West Line first started to plan for construction of the MRT station from City Hall to Outram Park and stretch until Clementi one year later and Lakeside two years later and also to Boon Lay only another three years later. The reason why the MRT planning and construction first started from Toa Payoh because Toa Payoh is the first development area to develop from both squatter settlements and kampong houses living in an unhygienic condition into Housing Development Board (HDB) and has lots of residents living in the HDB flats around Toa Payoh area on the northern part location of Singapore and also held the official opening at Toa Payoh MRT station on 5 November 1987. The East-West Line will also be stretched until Pasir Ris from the central part to eastern part location of Singapore and planned another two years later and then proceed to construct on the MRT construction project. The North-South Line will also be stretched and extended from Yishun until Choa Chu Kang during the 1990s due to an undeveloped area on the North-South Line extension and these four MRT stations located on the western part of Singapore from Jurong East to Choa Chu Kang being operational only on March 1990. The North-East Line is the first fully automated underground MRT station being planned starting from 1995 and stretched from our current port harbor of Singapore located near HarbourFront to the developed farmhouses at Punggol starting to build from 1997 until the operational on June 2003 to a technical fault on the MRT track during the North-East Line MRT train electrical signaling and testing. The Circle Line started to plan another two years later into five separate stages running in the heart city of Singapore which caused more convenience to the residents living around the area without any MRT station in the past times. The Circle Line started to build both the first and second stage from 2001, third stage in 2002 and the final two stages in the late 2005 and is the second fully automated underground MRT station of Singapore. The Downtown Line is the third fully automated underground MRT station with three different stages running in different directions starting from 2006 and shall be elaborated to you later. The first stage runs in the central heart location of Singapore while the second stage runs from the north-west until central part location of Singapore and the third stage runs from the central until eastern part location of Singapore.
