Construction of Loyang MRT station on the Cross Island Line is expected to start in the fourth quarter of this year, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said on Monday (Sep 13).

Passenger service at the station is projected to start in 2030, it added. 

The underground station will be located along Loyang Avenue, where there are many utilities under the road, said LTA. "Multiple traffic diversions" will hence be needed to realign the utilities.

The completion of Loyang station will cut 35 minutes of travel time between Loyang Industrial Area and Hougang, reducing the commute to 20 minutes, said LTA.

It will also save 50 minutes in travel time between Loyang Industrial Area and Serangoon North, bringing the commute down to 25 minutes.
