Measuring 57km and spanning 35 stations, the East-West Line (EWL) is the longest operating train line in Singapore. From Pasir Ris to Tuas Link, commuters can traverse the entire line in an hour and 13 minutes.
But did you know, the EWL was originally part of the North-South Line (NSL)? The latest extensions to the line were completed in June 2017, when Tuas West Extension was added.
With nine interchanges, the EWL intersects with the NSL at Jurong East MRT, Raffles Place MRT, and City Hall MRT stations. At Buona Vista MRT and Paya Lebar MRT stations, passengers can change to the Circle Line (CCL).
Tampines MRT, Expo MRT, Bugis MRT stations are connected to the Downtown Line (DTL). And if you want to switch to the North East Line (NEL), you can do so at Outram Park MRT station. With the 11 new Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) MRT stations set to open by the year’s end, you’ll be able to access the TEL from Outram Park MRT station soon.
