SMRT Thomson-East Coast Line Pte Ltd was incorporated in 2017 to operationalise the new Thomson-East Coast Line which is scheduled to open in stages from 2019.

The Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) will span 43km and add 31 new stations to the existing rail network, with seven interchange stations linking the TEL to all five existing MRT lines. Besides enhancing connectivity between the north, central and eastern parts of Singapore, the TEL will strengthen the resilience of our rail network by providing alternative travel routes for commuters on other lines.
