SINGAPORE — Several MRT stations on the East-West Line will close early on some days between October and December to facilitate maintenance work and the renewal of the power supply system.
SMRT said in a media release on Thursday (26 September) that on selected Fridays and Saturdays from 11 October to 23 November, seven stations – Tiong Bahru, Redhill, Queenstown, Commonwealth, Buona Vista, Dover and Clementi – will close early at about 11pm.
Following that, on Fridays and Saturdays from 6 to 14 December, three stations in the eastern part of Singapore – Simei, Tampines and Pasir Ris – will do likewise, closing at about 11pm.
During the early closures, shuttle bus services will be available to maintain connectivity for commuters travelling between Jurong East and Outram Park stations, as well as for between Tanah Merah and Pasir Ris stations.
The buses will serve designated bus stops near the affected MRT stations.
The timing of the last trains departing from each station during the planned early closures will vary. Commuters are advised to check the departure times at the affected MRT stations or on SMRT Trains’ website and social media platforms (SMRT’s Facebook page, Twitter feed and the SMRTConnect app) to better plan their journeys ahead of time.
SMRT will keep commuters updated on changes in train operation hours and alternative transport arrangements on the same media platforms.
