As part of its Land Transport Masterplan (LTMP), the Land Transport Authority (LTA) aims to double the length of the urban passenger rail network in Singapore from 138km in 2008 to 278km by 2020. The density of the rail network will increase by 60%, from 31km to 51km per million population. This will significantly increase the reach of public transport and shorten journey times of commuters. People who live, work and shop in the city centre will be able to reach a rail station within 400m on average, a mere 5-minute walk.
