The CR151 Train is an electric multiple unit (EMU) train being procured by Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) to serve the upcoming Cross Island Line (CRL). The line is expected to open for passenger service in 2030.
The CRL is designed and built to accommodate 8-car trains, but will operate with 6-car trains initially. CR151 trains are thus expected to be capable of being extended in future. Trains will also draw power from an overhead conductor rail system as referenced from Contract CR159.
An LTA-issued tender for these trains, Contract CR151 – Trains for Cross Island Line, was published on the government procurement website GeBIZ on 18 March 2022 and closed on 23 September 2022.
