    No early closure on Sunday (only Friday and Saturday), btw all train from Changi Airport will terminate at Tanah Merah, you need to change to train going toward City.

    Dear Sir/Madam.

    If I travel from Changhi airport to Clarke Quay on Sunday June 9th do I need to change trains at Tanah Merah MRT Station ?
    I know I have to change trains at EW 16 (Outram Park) to get onto the NE line, but I am not sure if I also have to change trains at Tanah Merah MRT Station. Can you please clarify?

    Thank you.

    Best regards,
    Diana Smit
