No choice as lack of spaces for building overground(but then need spaces for emergency exit and ventilation shaft).
This is surprise:
If anybody is good in korean, something from Hyundai Rotem on the HSR project:

Judging from a badly translated GTranslate, with some inference, seems like the usual old advertisement of their technology and trainsets on the trip to malaysia. Not much of a news i would say...

In the new Era of transport, nothing has changed, at least visibly. Disruption still a regular, and perhaps the bus is slow and safe...

Shinkansen 新幹線 runs on standard gauge, 1435mm, even for mini-shinkansen. 在來線 (conventional lines) uses 1067mm.

Agree with third rail problem, high speed rail is usually with overhead wire and AC. Is there any AC third rail?
In future, there may be a MRT line connecting Jurong East HSR station to Changi Airport.

Here is the Full Environmental Impact Assessment reports for KL-SG HSR:
The news broke that Malaysia's PM Dr Mahathir confirmed that Malaysia will scrap KL-Singapore HSR project. But Singapore havnt received the offical notification yet.
Looking at the Jurong Lake District video on YouTube (, 1:16, the Singapore government is smart to put the HSR station in the “central park”, instead of situate it together with other developments.

Picture of the HSR station in Jurong Lake District:

Now that the HSR is cancelled, as far as the development plan is concerned, it would not be adversely affected.

The land would at least be developed as a Central Park together with the rest of the Central Park, or earmarked together with the rest of the Central Park for other developments in future.

As for Raffles Country Club, which was acquired for the HSR, they had another objective, which is to develop the Cross Island Line Depot. Now that the HSR is cancelled, the authorities can consider having more developments in the Raffles Country Club location, such as building a bus depot next to the Cross Island Line depot.

Singapore has from the very beginning prepared for a possible cancellation of the HSR. Now that the HSR is cancelled, all that Singapore has to do is to amend the plan for the Raffles Country Club location, and recover the money spent on the HSR.
