Eleven stations along the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) Stage 3 will be opening on Sunday, 13 November 2022.
The announcement of the TEL Stage 3’s opening was made on 7 October 2022. With the TEL now extended to the City areas, the line is expected to reduce reliance and commuter load on the congested North South Line, while improving the resilience of rail network by providing alternative travel routes to other lines.

TEL Stage 3 was originally scheduled for opening in the Year 2021. This was delayed to the 2nd half of 2022, owing to material supplies and manpower disruption as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
To familiarise commuters with TEL3 stations, commuters can preview and travel for free along the TEL3 stations during the TEL3 opening event on 11 November 2022 from 10.00am to 9.00pm. A series of activities will be held to mark the opening of the newest stage of the TEL. More details of the activity line-up will be available subsequently on LTA’s social media pages.
Previously, a Virtual Open House was held for the TEL Stage 2 amid the COVID-19 pandemic and ongoing restrictions on physical gathering.
