Reminder on Service Adjustments on Circle Line

to Facilitate Rail Expansion Works

 

1        To facilitate track works for the integration of Stage 6 of the Circle Line (CCL) with the existing network, commuters are reminded of upcoming service adjustments to the CCL starting next week. 

 

2        From 20 January to 24 May 2024, one platform each at Telok Blangah and HarbourFront stations will be temporarily closed. A shuttle train will operate on the other platform between HarbourFront and Labrador Park stations at 10-minute intervals. CCL trains will turn around alternately at Kent Ridge and Labrador Park stations instead of HarbourFront station. Commuters travelling between Kent Ridge station and Labrador Park station can expect headways of about five minutes during peak hours. Commuters are advised to refer to train announcements and platform display panels for information on the station the train will end at. Please refer to the Annex for details of the services.

 

3        Commuters affected by the single platform closure can make use of 11 public bus services (10, 30, 57, 61, 93, 97, 100, 143, 166, 188 & 963) as an alternative to CCL. In addition, during peak hours on weekdays[1], an Express Shuttle Bus Service (E31) will ply HarbourFront, Telok Blangah, Labrador Park and Kent Ridge stations at 10 to 15-minute intervals. Commuters travelling to or from Haw Par Villa and Pasir Panjang stations can also travel on existing bus services serving the stations from Haw Par Villa to HarbourFront, such as bus services 10, 30, 143 or 188.

 

4        Commuters are advised to plan their journeys in advance. They can also refer to LTA’s MyTransport.SG mobile app and LTA’s and SMRT’s social media platforms for more details. Station staff will also be deployed at affected stations to provide assistance during the service adjustment period.

 

[1] Service will operate on weekdays between 6am to 10am and between 5pm to 9pm only.
