The Cross Island Line (CRL) is Singapore's 8th MRT line, stretching from Changi to Jurong. Phase 1 of the Cross Island Line will cover 29km and have 12 stations, starting from Aviation Park in Changi to Bright Hill in Sin Ming. There will also be a 7.3km-long Punggol Extension, which will link the existing Pasir Ris and Punggol stations via two new stations - Elias and Riviera.
For subsequent phases, the Cross Island Line is planned to extend westwards from Bright Hill to Bukit Timah, Clementi, West Coast and finally Jurong Industrial Estate.
Read on to learn more about the confirmed station locations in Phase 1 and properties near them.

Serving the area around Aviation Park Road, near Changi Air Base. The station number is "CR2", as LTA is considering linking the CRL to Changi Airport Terminal 5 so "CR1" is reserved for the potential airport station.
