SBS Transit will be conducting maintenance works on the Sengkang and Punggol Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems on Sundays over the next five months
as part of a continuation of the maintenance works that have been undertaken on the guideways since December 2015.
Guideways are paths on which the Light Rail Vehicles (LRV) move and their maintenance is essential as they can become bumpy over time, due to wear-and-tear.
Works will begin on Sunday, 23 April 2017 and are expected to end on 10 September 2017.
On these affected Sundays, one platform will be closed as power supply to its guideways will need to be turned off for safety reasons. The works will involve
hacking of concrete and cutting of metal bars while temporary sound barriers will be put up to reduce the noise generated.
The maintenance works will not affect LRT services, which will be available at all stations. However, the LRVs will operate only on one platform1.
The closed platform will open for service at 5.30pm on maintenance days.
Publicity posters will be put up at the LRT stations to keep commuters informed of the maintenance works that will be carried out.
Please refer to the attached poster for details.
