Johnston's Pier, a jetty, landing-platform for the convenient arrival and departure of sea travellers. It once stood opposite Fullerton Square, and Hong Kong Bank Building at Battery Road and Collyer Quay. The Development of a Pier for the convenience of commercial and shipping interests of the port was first suggested in the "Municipal Commissioners" meeting of 20 July 1853, and "this should be erected without unnecessary delay". The 21 January 1854, Municipal Commissioners meeting, "sanctioned the construction of a pier", to cope with the increasing sea-faring traffic in Singapore. It was the first major landing point ever constructed, and was extensively used.

 


 


 

The Singapore Railway line is the southernmost segment in the West Coast Line of what first began as the Malayan Railway, now known as KTM (Keretapi Tanah Melayu) Berhad, a Malaysian corporation wholly-owned by the Malaysian Government. Works were initiated with the ceremony of cutting of the first sod in 16 April 1900. The Singapore-Kranji Railway line running from Tank Road to Kranji was finally completed in 1903. Opened in two phases, the first section was launched on 1 January 1903. It ran from Tank Road to Bukit Timah and consisted of four stations along the line: Singapore, Newton, Cluny and Bukit Timah. The second section, which extended the line to Woodlands, was completed three months later when the Woodlands station was opened for use on 10 April 1903. Soon after, work began on an extension of the railway line to the wharves. The extension was completed and opened to the public on 21 January 1907. With the extension, the stations along the railway line now consisted of Woodlands, Bukit Panjang, Bukit Timah, Holland Road, Cluny Road, Newton, Tank Road, Borneo Wharf and Pasir Panjang.
