Part of Circle Line to close on 17 March, shuttle service to be provided






SINGAPORE: The stretch between the Mountbatten and Dakota stations on the Circle Line (CCL) will not be operational on Sunday 17 March, from 5.30am to 10am.

This is to allow engineers to continue doing cable replacement works.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) and SMRT said train services between Mountbatten and Paya Lebar stations will run as a shuttle service during that period.

During the shuttle service, normal service trains will stop at either Mountbatten or Paya Lebar station.

Commuters continuing their journey on the CCL will need to alight at one of these two stations and board the shuttle train at the opposite platform.

Commuters can then get off at the other station and continue their journey on the normal service train.

LTA and SMRT said the cable replacement at all 30 CCL stations is expected to be completed by December 2013, about half a year earlier than the 18-month timeline previously announced.

Works are currently ongoing for the first phase covering CCL stations from Dhoby Ghaut to Esplanade.

This will be followed by stations from Mountbatten to Tai Seng, Promenade to Stadium, Bartley to Marymount, Caldecott to one-north and Kent Ridge to HarbourFront.

The last phase will involve cables along Marina Bay and Bayfront.
