Oral Answer by Ministry of National Development on plans for Jurong Lake District

Jul 11, 2018

Mr Leon Perera: To ask the Minister for National Development what are the anticipated changes in timeline and planning for the Jurong Lake District should there be major delays, route alterations or cancellation of the High-Speed Rail project.


We have not received official notification from the Malaysian government on their position regarding the High-Speed Rail (HSR) project.  In the event there are changes in the status of the HSR project, we will study the implications carefully.  While there may be a need for some adjustments, we do not expect major changes to the overall plans for the Jurong Lake District. 

The plans for the Jurong Lake District were formulated in 2008 well before the HSR project came about.  The plans include new commercial and residential developments, upgrading of Jurong Lake Gardens, and the building of a transport hub connecting the various MRT lines.  These plans are still relevant today, and we will proceed with the implementation of the plans when ready.
