Land Transport Authority planned to develop Downtown MRT Line Project - Stage 2 - Contract 920, in Singapore. The project covered the construction of 1 station and associated tunnels, Newton Interchange Station and Tunnels. DTL2 would operate between Bugis station on the East-West Line in the centre of the city to Perit station on the Bukit Panjang light rail transit in the north-western region. The project would significantly save the travelling time of the commuters who currently depend on bus transport in Bukit Timah, Upper Bukit Timah and Bukit Panjang areas. The project would reduce travel time between the two stations by 30% and benefit more than 60,000 students in the Bukit Timah Corridor.
