LTA Media Statement: NSEWL Service Update

News Releases 08 Jul 2015 Media Statement North South East West Line (NSEWL)

Train services on the North-South and East-West Lines (NSEWL) have been operating since 5.30am today. They are now operating at normal headways. In total, 119 trains have been deployed to operate at intervals of two to three minutes on both lines. We have also observed that there was no power tripping on the system during the evening peak hours and will continue to monitor train operations till the end of train service. 

Over the course of last night, engineers have tried to systematically identify the root cause of the disruptions. They have conducted visual checks on trains, carried out checks on the MRT tracks and on the power systems, including the substation power supply equipment. LTA and SMRT will continue checks on the system after today’s operating hours. 

As we focus on finding the root of the power trip, faults may still occur from time to time and we seek the patience and understanding of commuters. Commuters are advised to check for updates before starting their trip. Information will be available on the SMRT website, LTA and SMRT Facebook and Twitter accounts, LTA Traffic News and MyTransport.SG. In case of a service disruption, commuters can continue their journey on the free bus services or use the unaffected rail lines.
