This opening post of our new series starts off with the North-South line (NSL). And we post in sequence, starting from the first station on the line – Jurong East. Inaugurated in 1987 this line now runs in a sort of circular route on its own from the middle of town to the western end of the island via the north.
To residents of our island, it should conjure up images of factories and smoke emitting chimmneys. Well yeah. Sort of, but not quite anymore. Because quite some of it has moved further westwards to Tuas. Huh? Yeah. Anyhow this “eastern” side of Jurong is mainly residential and the station is part of the commercial hub that serves the community around it.
This is a photo essay. So there should not be any long ramble from us (finally we hear some of you coo), except this first one… Because we had so many photos of the precincts around each station, we’ve limited it to 5-6 representative ones in the subsequent posts.
