The Circle LIne

Category : Commentary/circleline.txt

Every morning that I come to work, I pass by the enormous construction along Dhoby Ghaut and Bras Basah, caused by the building of the Circle Line.

It's now reached Phase 3. Phase 1, 2, and 3 are being built simultaneously. The last known station is at Marymount, near where I live in Upper Thomson.

I believe it's the Circle Line that will make the public transportation work really well in Singapore. Take the case of the journalist who lives in Sengkang. To get to her office in Braddell, she needs to go all the way down the North East Line to Dhoby Ghaut and then back-track up the North South Line to Braddell.

With the Circle Line, she'll get down half of the way in Serangoon, switch to the Circle Line to move sideways to Bishan, and then get down south one more stop to Braddell. It's a zig-zag pattern. But, at about three minutes per stop (about eight stops in all plus some allowance for changing lines), she may get to her office in half an hour. That should cut the time lost to travel by half.

It's like the spider's web. The Circle Line ties everything together. It's the piece that will make all the other lines jive.

I'd like to see the Circle Line pass by Coronation, Holland Village, and Buona Vista, on its way to Alexandra and the Harbour Front. How many of these guesses will be spot-on? Time will tell.
