Civil Engineering, Ongoing
The new Punggol interchange station is located along Punggol Central. Traffic and utilities diversions to facilitate the construction works will be carried out in phases to minimise inconvenience to residents and motorists. The works will also include addition & alteration works to the existing NEL Punggol station to allow seamless transfer and enhance connectivity between NEL, LRT and the new Cross Island Line – Punggol Extension (CPe).
The 7.3-kilometre CPe will comprise four stations, namely Punggol, Riviera, Elias, and Pasir Ris. Three of the stations will serve as interchanges with other lines. Pasir Ris will link to the East-West Line, while Punggol will link to the North-East Line and Riviera will connect to the existing station of the same name on the Punggol LRT line. This will provide better rail connectivity and greater accessibility for those living in eastern areas such as Pasir Ris and Tampines North as well as north-eastern areas such as Punggol and Sengkang. More than 40,000 households are expected to benefit from the CPe.
