Operator Poster

Note:

  • Posters for the Early Closure & Late Opening were put up at MRT Stations on 5 Aug 2019. However, as the initial press release was not out yet (as of 5 Aug 2019 morning), the QR Code on Poster did not link to the correct press release. This was subsequently rectified.
  • These posters were subsequently taken down as the official press release from SMRT only came out on 13 Aug 2019.
