SINGAPORE – The Jurong Country Club site will be where the terminus of the Singapore-Kuala Lumpur high-speed rail (HSR) will be located.
The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has gazetted the acquisition of the 67ha plot and the club will be expected to hand over the land by November 2016, the Government said on Monday.
Two upcoming MRT lines, the Jurong Region Line and the Cross Island Line, which will be completed in 2025 and 2030 respectively, will also be within accessible distance of the new terminus.
Authorities also said that Customs, Immigration and Quarantine complex will be located inside the terminus, with passengers only needing to go through a single border checkpoint either on the Malaysian or Singapore side.
In view of the development of the HSR, the nearby executive condo such as Lake Life executive condo and the upcoming Westwood Residences executive condominiums would benefit from it.
