CHANGES TO MRT OPERATING HOURS IN DECEMBER 2018

North-South Line (NSL) & East-West Line (EWL)

7 stations along the NSL, from Marsiling to Jurong East, and 5 stations along the EWL, from Dover to Lakeside, will close earlier at 11pm on Fridays and Saturdays from 30 November to 15 December 2018, for maintenance and renewal works.

 

Journey Calendar December 2018

 

WHY THE NEED FOR CHANGES TO OPERATING HOURS?

The shorter operating hours will provide more hours for our engineers to renew and upgrade the power supply system safely, as well as to conduct maintenance and asset renewal works.

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

 

WHAT ALTERNATIVES ARE THERE?

Shuttle Bus Services 2 and 4 will ply along the affected sectors, stopping at designated bus stops near the MRT stations to pick-up and drop-off passengers. In addition, Express 17, a bi-directional point-to-point bus service between Woodlands and Bukit Panjang MRT Stations, will be provided to connect commuters to the Downtown Line.
