No train services: 17 EW Line, 2 NS Line MRT stations fully closed on Dec. 10 & 17, 2017


Here’s a reminder: A total of 19 MRT stations will be fully closed on two consecutive Sundays, Dec. 10 and 17, 2017.

These stations include 17 East-West Line (EWL) MRT stations and two North-South Line (NSL) MRT stations.

The 17 EWL stations will be from Tiong Bahru to Tuas Link, and the two NSL stations are Bukit Batok and Bukit Gombak.

The closure is to facilitate extended engineering hours.

Each closure is expected to affect tens of thousands of commuters each time.

Earlier closure, later start time

In addition, from Dec. 8 to 31, the 17 EWL stations and two NSL stations will close earlier on Fridays and Saturdays at 11pm and open later on Saturdays and Sundays at 8am.

Please refer to this calender:

Re-signalling works

The shorter operating hours will double engineering and track access time for engineers to “accelerate” re-signalling works on the EWL.

Bukit Batok and Bukit Gombak are affected as engineering works will extend to Jurong East MRT station, a heavily used intersection of the NSL and EWL.

Alternative shuttle buses

The Land Transport Authority has put up information about shuttle buses available from Dec. 8 to 31, 2017, due to the MRT closures and shorter operating hours:
