Four MRT lines in Marina Bay by 2018

BY 2018, the Marina Bay area will be served by four MRT lines - the North-South Line, Circle Line, Downtown Line and the Thomson Line.

Commuters will be able to reach an MRT station within a walking distance of no more than 400m on average.

Transport Minister Raymond Lim revealed this in response to MP and deputy chair of Government Parliamentary Committee for Transport Ong Kian Min's question on what was being done to make transport seamless in the Marina Bay area which will house the integrated resort.

Mr Lim said that the ministry was also working on making access to MRT stations in the new downtown seamless, with walkways underground, at street level and above ground.

Some could also be malls, like the link between Suntec City and City Hall MRT station.
