Date: 15/04/16

SINGAPORE: From Jun 5 to Dec 18 this year, train services at 13 stations along the North-South and East-West Lines will start an hour later on all Sundays except public holidays, transport operator SMRT said.

In a statement on Friday (Apr 15), SMRT said the affected stations would be from Joo Koon to Queenstown on the East-West Line and from Bukit Gombak to Jurong East on the North-South Line.

The new operating hours mean that the train services at these stations will start by 7am, instead of by 6am.

Train services along parts of the North-South and East-West lines will start up to an hour later on Sundays to give engineers more time to carry out maintenance works.

Stations open at different times but full services will be up by 7am.

The later start times will affect 13 stations from June 5 to Dec 18, excluding public holidays.

Trains services at 13 North-South East-West Line (NSEWL) stations to start an hour later on Sundays from June to December 2016
Press Release SMRT 15/04/16

1. From 5 June 2016 to 18 December 2016, train services at 13 stations along the NSEWL – Joo Koon to Queenstown on the East-West Line (EWL) and Bukit Gombak to Jurong East on the North-South Line (NSL) – will commence service up to one hour later than usual on Sundays, except on public holidays. Train services at these stations will start by 7am.

2. Currently, our project teams, track patrol teams and maintenance teams have about three to four hours of engineering hours each night to carry out works to renew and upgrade the system, in addition to carrying out regular maintenance needed for daily train operations. The later opening will enable these teams to gain the equivalent of 29 additional maintenance nights over the 6-month period. This translates into 2,320 more sleepers and an additional 3,230 metres of third rail that can be replaced. The EWL sleeper replacement project is on track for completion in early 2017.

Alternative travel arrangements

3. Commuters are encouraged to plan their travel to start after 7am on Sunday mornings where possible. For commuters who must travel before 7am, they can use the existing bus services to get to other train stations; or use the Circle Line and Downtown Line to get to the city. SMRT has also arranged for a new parallel bus service to ply the route from Joo Koon to Bukit Gombak in both directions. More information of the new parallel bus service and fares will be made available within the next few weeks.

From: TODAY
Date: 11/05/16

SINGAPORE — Train services at 13 stations on the East-West and North-South lines will begin nearly an hour later than usual every Sunday from June 5 to Dec 18, said SMRT in a press release on Wednesday (May 11).

The plan for a later start time on Sundays was first announced by the transport operator last month. The move is to facilitate track maintenance and renewal works on the western sector of the rail network, said SMRT.

The 13 affected stations are between Joo Koon and Queenstown on the East-West Line and Jurong East to Bukit Gombak on the North-South Line. Commuters who utilise train services before the new start time are encouraged to plan their travel to start after 7am or consider alternative transport arrangements.
