The MRT Northern Line, or simply the Northern Line, is one of the 21 lines of the New World MRT System and one of the 10 additional New World MRT lines.

History

The Northern Line was first mentioned in the New World MRT plans in August 2014. It would go from the NW corner with a terminal shared with MRT Arctic Line, MRT Taiga Line and MRT Western Line to the NE corner in a terminal shared with MRT Zephyr Line and MRT Eastern Line. The MRT line extension agenda item in January 2015 GSM included a possible new line, Quagmire Line also going to the NE corner. The line also took a more southerly alignment to meet with MRT Circle Line; the  C114  to  C4  stations still reflect that you could transfer to Northern Line in its arrival signs.

It wasn't until around September 2016 that RacCort (called CortesiRaccoon at this time) started building the eastern section from  NE3  to  NE18  and opened the extension in October 20, 2016. There was also some controversy that surrounded MRT Northern Line construction, that led to CortesiRaccoon almost dropping the project, but after the October 2016 GSM, decided against dropping it and continued work. He ended his role in building the line after resigning from staff in November 2016 and led to AP_Red taking the project.

In December 2016 GSM, AP_Red started constructing the western section of Northern Line from the NW corner to  NE3 , where CortesiRaccoon stopped at when he resigned from staff, taking a more northerly alignment via Pine Mountain compared to the alignment suggested in Gamma MRT line plans, and was numbered from  N1  to  N28 / NE3 . The section between  N1  (now  NW26 ) to  N13  (now  NW14 ) opened in March 5, 2017, and the section between  N14  (now  NW13 ) and  N26  (now  NW1 ) opened in April 15, 2017. Due to "complications" at Liten, it remained unconnected to the eastern section until a while later when it was finally connected through  NX  and the stations were renumbered to  NW26  to  N0 .

In the Epsilon MRT plans by Frumple, Northern West would be extended to the western border, with an interchange with MRT Expo Line while Northern East would be extended southeast to an interchange with MRT Expo Line and the far east line now known as MRT Jungle Line. As part of the MRT Eastern Line extension,  NEX  was built along with  EN24  Nymphalia - Cetisy, with a short track stub curving over Eastern Line in accordance with the routing set by the plan.

In the Zeta MRT plans by Frumple in April 2020, Northern West would be extended to meet with MRT Western Line and then it goes west to Western Zeta along the shore of Lake 42, while Northern East would be extended to meet with Eastern Line then it would go northeast to the mega taiga in the east before it would either turn to the north, stopping just south of the mushroom island or continue east to the mega taiga.

In May 2020 GSM, VickiTori_ began building the extension of Northern West to Carnoustie. It was completed in May 17, 2020 and opened on the June 2020 GSM.

Meanwhile, there were many calls to extend Northern Line East as early as late 2019, with AP_Red and sesese9 indicating possible interest in working on this extension. However, it wasn't until the July 2021 ISM that sesese9 and Missa_Solemnis proposed an extension of Northern East from  NE18  to  NE30  via  NEX  Nymphalia - Cetisy. As part of the extension,  NEX  was renumbered to  NE24 . It interchanges with the MRT Eastern Line, travelling in parallel with the Eastern line from  NE22  to  NE28  with an additional transfer at  NE29 .

Route

The Northern Line runs along Ward 8, Ward 9, Ward 1 and Ward 2. The current travel duration for the line's entire length is approximately 45 minutes.
