Construction of the 30km north-south Thomson Line is due to start in stages from the third quarter of this year. The initial three-station section will open in the north of Singapore between Woodlands North and Woodlands South with an interchange with the existing North South Line at Woodlands. The line will be extended south to Caldicot in 2020 where it will connect with the Circle Line. Completion of the line via Orchard, Outram Park, and Marina Bay to Gardens by the Bay is scheduled for 2021.

The Thomson Line will have 22 stations in total, of which six will provide an interchange with other metro lines, and it is expected to carry 400,000 passengers a day.
