[SINGAPORE] The 50km Cross Island Line (CRL) will be an important part of Singapore's rail network, with about 30 stations - nearly half of them interchanges - that will offer commuters many travel options, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan said.

Spanning from east to west and serving residential areas such as Loyang, Pasir Ris, Hougang, Ang Mo Kio, Sin Ming, Bukit Timah, Clementi and West Coast, commuters will make at least 600,000 trips on the CRL every day, Mr Khaw told Parliament on Monday.

He was replying to a question from Mr Louis Ng (Nee Soon GRC) about the two proposed alignments of the CRL - one of which will cut through the Central Catchment Nature Reserve (CCNR) and the other to skirt around it.

Mr Khaw said that no decision has been made on which alignment will be chosen.
