Jurong Region Line (JRL) Discussion

Other countries' classification may not necessarily be the same as ours. You know how we classify MRT and LRT? All our LRT systems use rubber tyred trains while our MRT runs on metallic wheels on metal rails. Read the news report carefully, the LTA has already said that it's NOT suitable to build JRL as an LRT line (which of course uses rubber tyres in the context of Singapore). Please expect a system like KL's Kelana Jaya Line for JRL instead.

Have you already read the last reply? MRT systems can be using steel wheels or rubber tyred trains. If you read the last reply on why JRL possibility using rubber tyred wheels have a good reason on it. Especially when the train run on sharp curve which generate noise when using steel wheels, which causes uncomfortable for commuters.

We didnt said that you comment is right or wrong, because we not sure what kind of wheels which using. But I hope you can understand the advantages of why rubber tyred wheels benefits for JRL operation.

I'm expecting something similar to montreal's metro or Paris' rubber tyred system, since it'll be quieter, and have better acceleration

If not it'll be something similar to the DLR since it also has to negotiate tight curves and gradients. The layout of the JRL seems to be leaning towards the DLR service pattern. However, the DLR was built on unused railway, hence the decision to use metal wheels, rather than rubber tyred

Like. I. Said. The type of wheels used for the train doesn't classify whether it's a light rail or not. 
An MRT train can use metal / rubber tyred trains. It is not a fixed rule set by LTA. LTA only cancelled out the BPLRT type of system because those APM trains are meant for small layouts in airports. BPLRT isn't the only rubber tyred train system out there, there are tons of other rubber tyre options out there as well. I suspect LTA will be using a system similar to Paris metro, even the carriage specifications for JRL are identical to Paris metro, which has rubber tyred lines that arent considered light rail at all. Rubber tyres generate less noise, for this information I advise you to read leonardtan's comment on Paris Metro on the previous page and Google sapporo metro, can't be bothered to retype everything he did lmao.

Thank you for travelling on the Tokyo Rinkai Kaisoku Tetsudo Rinkai Line.

I’m expecting the trains to be same as the one used on Sengkang-Punggol LRT, except maybe just the dimensions wider only, or exactly the same, with 1-2 more cars per train than the Sengkang-Punggol LRT.

They(reffering to JRL) using train cars which measured by 18.6m by 2.8m.
