The early closure is due to track maintenance and component replacement works for the Purple Line’s signaling system.

The Fridays and Saturdays affected are:

  • 1 and 2 Nov
  • 8 and 9 Nov
  • 15 and 16 Nov
  • 22 and 23 Nov

People staying between Kovan & Punggol take note

The 5 affected North-East line stations are:

  • Kovan
  • Hougang
  • Buangkok
  • Sengkang
  • Punggol

With 5 stations affected, this means that train services for the rest of the Purple Line will operate at longer intervals of about 9 minutes during this period.

Shuttle bus service on affected days

On the affected days, shuttle bus 21 will be operating to let commuters travelling between Serangoon & Punggol arrive at their destination.

This shuttle bus will come every 2 to 5 minutes and stop at bus stops or interchange near the affected MRT stations.
