LONGER TRAIN SERVICE INTERVALS ON NSL IN APRIL 2019

In April 2019, train services on the North-South Line (NSL) between Orchard and City Hall MRT stations will operate at longer intervals of 10 to 15 minutes. This will happen on Saturday and Sunday mornings, from the start of service till 7.00am.

There will also be no NSL service between City Hall and Raffles Place stations from the start of service till 7.00am. Commuters travelling between these stations can use the East-West Line (EWL) instead.

 

 

WHY IS THERE A NEED FOR LONGER TRAIN SERVICE INTERVALS?

The longer train service intervals will provide more hours for our engineers to intensify and speed up maintenance and asset renewal works.

Commuters can look forward to increased train service reliability when these works are completed.

 

COMMUTERS ADVISED TO PLAN AHEAD

Commuters are advised to check the departure times at affected MRT stations, or on SMRT Trains’ website and social media platforms, in order to plan their journeys ahead of time.
