Early Closure of East West Line (October 2018)

Shorter operating hours along the East West Line (EWL) between Tiong Bahru and Clementi will take place on Fridays & Saturdays in October 2018 to facilitate additional engineering hours to renew and upgrade the EWL power supply system safely, conduct ongoing maintenance works and install noise barriers along the railway tracks. This will involve early closures along the EWL.

The early closures in October 2018 are on top of Sunday late opening on the Bukit Panjang LRT between July to October 2018.
