About the Singapore MRT

The Singapore MRT is the national rail system of Singapore. It has a daily ridership of 3.4 million as of 2019. The first section of the MRT opened on 7 November 1987, and the network has since grown rapidly in accordance with Singapore's aim of developing a comprehensive rail network as the backbone of the country's public transportation system.


As of January 2020, the MRT network encompasses 203 kilometres (126 mi) of route on standard gauge, with 122 stations in operation, spread across six lines set in a circle-radial topology. The network is expected to double to a total length of almost 400 kilometres (250 mi) by 2040 as a result of ongoing expansion works to its six existing lines and the construction of three new lines. The network is complemented by a small number of local Light Rail Transit (LRT) networks in the suburban towns of Bukit Panjang, Sengkang, and Punggol that link MRT stations with HDB public housing estates, bringing the combined length of the domestic heavy and light rail network to 231.6 kilometres (143.9 mi), with a total of 159 stations in operation.

Before the construction, it was proposed to be named St Andrew's (from the St Andrew's Catholic Church). During the construction, they had many difficulties. One such issue was that they needed to cross the Singapore River. At that time, the river was polluted, making the soil acidic. The solution was to 'drain' parts of it and build an integral waterproofing tunnel.
