Jurong railway was developed in accordance with the steady growth of Jurong Industrial Estate in the late 1960s. The Jurong line was constructed from 1963 and was officially opened in 1966. The 19.3km track ran from the Bukit Timah Railway Station next to King Albert Park, through Pasir Panjang, and ended at Shipyard Road, near the Mobil refinery.
Over the years, changing trends in logistics led to more efficient methods of transportation and the Jurong Railway ceased operations in the mid-1990s. Since then, the unused railway tracks of the Jurong Line have been a haunt for explorers and wildlife enthusiasts.
