Revised Operating Hours for Bukit Panjang LRT (from January 2019)

Revised Operating Hours along the entire Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit Line (BPLRT) will take place from Sunday, 13 January 2019 to enable SMRT to intensify and accelerate maintenance and system renewal works. Train services will be adjusted to end earlier at 11:30pm.

The adjustment for more engineering hours is part of the Bukit Panjang LRT Overhaul in which the contract was awarded to Bombardier in March 2018.


Cessation of Service C & Closure of Ten Mile Junction Station

During the initial announcement in March 2018, Service C, along with Ten Mile Junction station, was estimated to cease operations permanently from the fourth quarter of 2018. However, the announcement in late December 2018 confirms that the station will close from Sunday, 13 January 2019. The last day of operations will be on 12 January 2019.

The vacated station space in BP14  Ten Mile Junction will thereafter be converted into a stabling and testing ground for the new C801B Trains procured as part of the Bukit Panjang LRT Overhaul.
