NEL system map of station closures in Phases 1 and 2

To facilitate a series of renewal and intensified maintenance works on the North East Line’s (NEL) railway systems, selected stations on the NEL will close earlier at about 11.00pm on the first four Fridays and Saturdays in November 2019. Details are as follow:

Phase 4 (2019)
Dates Stations
1 & 2 November NE13 Kovan to NE17 Punggol
8 & 9 November
15 & 16 November
22 & 23 November

Phase 4: Station Closures

Phase 4: Last Train Timings

As the timings of the last trains departing each station during the planned closures will vary, commuters are advised to check for station-specific timings at affected MRT stations to plan their journeys ahead.

Phase 4 Last train timings:
Towards NE1 HarbourFront
Phase 4 Last train timings: 
Towards NE17 Punggol & NE 12 Serangoon

Phase 4: Extended operational hours of Sengkang and Punggol LRT services

To maintain connectivity for commuters in Sengkang and Punggol, train services on the Light Rail Transit (LRT) systems will be extended to 1.10am and 1.15am respectively on the affected Fridays and Saturdays in Phase 4.

Phase 4: Bi-directional Train shuttle service frequency

Trains on the NEL between NE12 Serangoon and NE1 HarbourFront stations will operate bi-directional shuttle services. Trains from NE1 HarbourFront that are headed towards NE12 Serangoon Station will use a single track between Woodleigh and Serangoon stations to turn around. This arrangement will result in a longer frequency of up to nine minutes, instead of the usual six minutes.

Phase 4: Shuttle Bus 21 First/Last Bus Timings & Boarding/Alighting Points

With the planned early closure of these stations, commuters have alternative travel options - taking dedicated shuttle buses. The shuttle buses will serve the closed stations and call at designated bus stops /interchanges for passenger boarding and alighting. Fares for the shuttle services will follow the same fare structure as the trains.

Commuters should also cater for additional travel time when travelling between MRT stations using the shuttle bus services
