The Punggol LRT Line is the third line of the LRT system in Singapore. Its first phase comprises a 10.3km line with 15 stations. Similar to the Sengkang LRT Line, its rolling stock and line operator are the Crystal Movers and SBS Transit respectively.
The Punggol LRT Line serves the residents in the town and urban planning area of Punggol. While as of 2007 Punggol is less densely populated than other towns, there are plans to turn it into a new town housing hundreds of thousands of people.
Punggol LRT Station, the centrepiece of the line, is located directly above the Punggol MRT Station, thus linking up the Punggol LRT Line to the Mass Rapid Transit system that spans the entire island of Singapore.
Construction of the first phase was completed in June 2004, and underwent testing by the Land Transport Authority. The system was handed over to SBS Transit on 1 December 2004, who conducted more trial runs and staff training before the opening of the East Loop on January 29, 2005. Oasis Station was opened on 15 June 2007 and Damai Station, as well as the entire West Loop, will be opened at a later date, once there are more developments within the vicinity of the stations.
While provisions have been made for the second phase of the system involving a 4-station northern spur line branching from PW2 Teck Lee, the plan has been put on hold indefinitely.
