About this blog

Hi there,

This is a blog set up to track the construction progress of Singapore's Thomson MRT Line (TSL) stage 1 and stage 2. Currently, we're in the process of testing out the layouts and whether this is a workable platform for sorting the information accordingly. Do stick around and see how the landscape changes over the years. We'd welcome photos too, just drop a line via the comments section.

For now though, follow us as we test the layout on the Downtown Line construction blog. Let us know what works and what doesn't. Thanks & stay tuned for more here as construction work ramps up on TSL!
