LTA trials Enhanced Security Screening at MRT Stations

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has commenced a six-month trial for enhanced security screening at selected MRT stations across all rail lines from Monday, 12 November 2018.

As part of the trial, some commuters may be required to use a walk-through metal detector and pass their belongings through X-ray scanners, before entering the faregates. Screening equipment may be deployed at up to six MRT stations at any one time. Information obtained through the trial will enable LTA to streamline and optimise its security screening processes, and reduce the future impact on daily rail operations. LTA will also collect feedback from commuters and public transport operators to improve the effectiveness of future security operations and emergency exercises.

Commuters have spotted the additional security equipment, such as walk-through metal detectors and X-ray machines at the following MRT stations:
