|Speculative map of the JRL network|
For the purpose of our speculative map, we have broken the line into three main branches with the associated codes as follows:
- Central / Choa Chu Kang branch (JC) - Runs from Choa Chu Kang to Jurong Industrial Estate
- Western branch (JW) - Runs from Boon Lay to NTU
- Eastern branch (JE) - Runs from Tengah to West Coast
Jurong Central / Choa Chu Kang branch (JC1 - JC12)
|Station locations JC1 to JC5 & JE1.|
|JRL viaduct seen crossing Brickland Road onto Choa Chu Kang Avenue 3 at HDB hub exhibition on Tengah New Town.|
As indicated in plans for Tengah New Town, three stations will be located in Tengah along the Central / Choa Chu Kang branch. We have given these the names Lam San, Tengah (Central) and Hong Kah; to be located at the Forest Hills, Market Place (Town Centre) and Garden districts respectively.
|Draft Masterplan for Tengah New Town. Grey section on the left is a Integrated Public Transport Utility (depot).|
|Former expected depot site.|
The recent plans unveiled show a shift of location for the depot. In the masterplan 2014, the depot was supposed to be located at a site along Jurong West Avenue 2. It appears that the depot has since been shifted to the southern part of the Jurong Innovation District in Tengah New Town. We expect that there may be an option for stabling facilities to be located at the formerly proposed site.
|Locations of stations JC5 to JC8.|
After crossing the Pan Island Expressway (PIE), the line follows along Jurong West Avenue 2. Two stations are expected to be located here - one at Bulim and one at Wenya. Both stations should provide adequate coverage to the residential blocks, Jurong Junior College and industries located in the area. As the line swings south to Jalan Boon Lay, another station should be located roughly around River Valley High School.
|Station locations of JC9 to JC12.|
The line continues south along Jalan Boon Lay with a stations at Chin Bee Drive and Jalan Tukang. Once the line crosses the Ayer Rajah Expressway, the final two stations can be expected in the vicinity of Jurong Hill and Pulau Damar along Jurong Pier Road. The Jurong Central / Choa CHu Kang branch terminates here.
Jurong West branch (JW1 - JW6)
|Jurong West branch comprising of stations JW1 to JW6.|
Following the Gek Poh station, the line crosses the PIE again to enter the Cleantech region of the Jurong Innovation District. Another station should be located at Nanyang Hill with the final terminus of the western branch along Nanyang Drive.
Jurong East branch (JE1 - JE7)
|Station locations of stations JE1 to JE4.|

|Speculative station locations of stations JE4 to JE7.|
We hope that the above stations give some insight to how the JRL may be developed and the types of services operated along the network. Once again, we would like to highlight that the above locations are part of speculation with educated guesses. The official announcement of the station locations will be due shortly and until then the above should not be treated as official information.
