From Dec 8 to Dec 31, 17 East-West Line (EWL) stations from Tiong Bahru to Tuas Link, and two North-South Line stations Bukit Batok and Bukit Gombak, will close earlier on Fridays and Saturdays.
The company supplying the new signalling system for the East-West Line (EWL), on which a train collision occurred last week, “could have done better”, says Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan.

In retrospect, the collision – unfortunate as it was with 38 people injured – is a powerful lesson as signalling failures can have far more dire consequences.
Commuters travelling along the East-West Line and North-South Line will experience shorter operating hours over the weekend and full closures on some Sundays in December at 19 stations.
