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.
Early closures on East-West Line also on the cards to speed up works in wake of collision.
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.
Commuters said the planned early closures of MRT stations next month would be an inconvenience, but worth it if the maintenance work to be done during that time paid off.
The total number of injured in the train collision at Joo Koon MRT station now stands at 38, following two new walk-in cases on Friday (Nov 17) at Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.
Services have been suspended as the authorities continue investigations into Wednesday’s (Nov 15) SMRT train collision at Joo Koon, which left 38 people injured.
Showing support for the 22,000 public transport workers here like Mr Singh is what the Government, labour movement, and public transport operators are hoping to encourage.
