Tengah MRT Depot is a future MRT train depot serving the Jurong Region Line (JRL). Located west of Tengah New Town, the at-grade integrated depot occupies a 44.5-hectare site, and comprises an Integrated Rail and Bus depot, ancillary buildings and a transport workers’ dormitory.

When completed, the at-grade Tengah Depot will be Singapore’s 10th MRT depot.


Tengah MRT Depot is designed for the stabling and maintenance of 100 four-car trains, servicing the Jurong Region Line as its primary depot. In addition, there will be a stabling facility near Peng Kang Hill Station to facilitate the launching and withdrawal operations of trains.

The multi-storey Tengah Bus Depot is co-located with the MRT depot to optimise land use and streamline construction processes. It will house a Bus Operations Control Centre, and provide parking and maintenance facilities for about 600 buses. To optimise land use, the depot will also include a four-storey transport workers’ dormitory that can accommodate 450 bus captains.


Contract J101 – Design and Construction of Tengah Depot and Associated Facilities for Jurong Region Line was awarded to Railway 11 Bureau Group Corporation (Singapore Branch) in November 2019 at a total contract value of $739.5 million. Construction of Tengah Depot is expected to commence in 2020 and is slated for completion in 2026.


On 2 December 2023 at about 11:20pm, Mr Ponraman Eazhumalai, a concrete pump assistant, was caught between the chassis of a concrete pump truck and a retracting outrigger at Tengah Depot worksite. He later died of his injuries the next day.
