SINGAPORE: All 233 escalators at 42 MRT stations along the North-South and East-West lines will be refurbished and upgraded by 2021, Otis Elevator announced on Wednesday (Feb 3).

This is the first refurbishment and modernisation effort for escalators on the North-South and East-West lines, according to the American multinational firm, which was awarded the US$33.8 million (S$ 47.3 million) contract by the rail operator.

It added that the project is scheduled to start in the third quarter of 2016.

The escalators will be upgraded with higher efficiency machines as well as new energy-saving controllers, allowing the escalators to operate at different speeds and better cater to passenger traffic during different periods of the day, the company said.
