The Punggol LRT line is an automated guideway transit line in Singapore. The line, which initially opened on 29 January 2005, connects the residential districts and suburbs of Punggol to Punggol Town Centre, where it connects with the North East MRT line and the Punggol Bus Interchange. It is the third line of the LRT system in Singapore and like all other LRT lines, it is fully elevated and uses automated trains.
The first phase is a 10.3-kilometre (6.4 mi) line with 15 stations in two loops. It is the second LRT line to be operated by SBS Transit.
Plans for the Punggol LRT line were drawn up and announced in January 1999 with the development of Punggol New Town. Construction began in June 2000 by a consortium comprising Sembcorp Industries, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and Mitsubishi Corporation, at a cost of S$354 million. The first phase was completed in June 2004, and underwent testing by the Land Transport Authority. The system was handed over to SBS Transit on 1 December 2004, which conducted more trial runs and staff training before the opening of the East Loop on 29 January 2005. The West Loop opened on 29 June 2014.
A covered middle platform at Punggol and a short track piece branching from Teck Lee have already been built for Punggol North LRT which plans were subsequently scrapped and replaced by Punggol Coast MRT station.
West loop became fully operational on 29 September 2018 in both directions throughout the day, except for Teck Lee, which is yet to be opened
