The Jurong Region Line is a future rapid transit line currently under planning. Targeted for completion in 2025, it will be the seventh MRT line in Singapore, employing a fully automated and driverless mode of operation.

First announced in January 2013, the line will connect serve residents of Choa Chu Kang, Boon Lay and the future developments in the Tengah area, and connect to main activity nodes in Jurong West, such as Nanyang Technological University (NTU), the Jurong Industrial estate, including Jurong Island and the future Jurong Gateway. The line is likely to be overground.

Also under study is a West Coast Extension, extending the Jurong Region Line east and connecting to the Circle Line at Haw Par Villa. If found to be feasible, the extension will be completed by 2030.

The exact alignment of the line and its stations are expected to be announced in 2017.
