Singapore is looking to set itself apart from its peers by opening a high-tech high-capacity rail line with a price tag of $40 trillion.
According to the Department of Transport, the $40-billion Singapore Line would connect the city with major population centers such as Pahang, Mokung, and Pohang, as well as a number of international destinations including Shanghai and Shenzhen.
The Singapore Line, which will operate from 2021 to 2028, will have an annual operating cost of $10.5 billion, according to the department.
The project will include a $1 billion-plus investment by the Singapore government to build a high capacity rail line connecting the city to the rest of Singapore and a $3.5-billion project to extend the line from Pahong to the city’s airport, the department said.
The line would be the first of its kind in the world.
It will also include a new train station at Changi Airport and a new elevated track at Pahowang, which has been constructed for the line.
The proposed Singapore Line will be the biggest high-density rail project in Singapore, with a total capacity of more than 600 km (370 miles), with the current line connecting Pahoyong to Singapore’s airport.
It would connect all of Singapore’s major airports.
The planned line will be constructed with a combination of local and international infrastructure, including new, high-frequency signals, high capacity trains, and a number a stations.
It is also expected to have high speeds of up to 300 km/h (190 mph).
The Singapore Government is also looking to improve the quality of life in the city of Pahun.
It has announced that it is launching an “emergency response” program to improve housing quality, with the aim of reducing crime, litter, and other issues.
Singapore will also host a number special events in its downtown, such as the annual Singapore World Fair in 2018 and the annual Siam Carnival.
