I have locked the old thread (ALL consolidated SMRT/NEL/KT.. simisai BREAKDOWNS here!) as it is getting to large (>10,800 posts). Please continue the discussion here, on matter relating to mantenance and breakdown of MRT & LRT network.
On discussion of management and other administrative matters, please post it under the Change in SMRT CEO (Apr 2018), Management & Other Matters.
4 current / standing announcements by SMRT and SBS Transit as follow:
Alternate Transport Services
SMRT will be carrying out planned maintenance work on the Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit (BPLRT) every Sunday from 15 April to 24 June 2018. As such, there will be no LRT services on Sundays during this period. In lieu of LRT train services on these 11 Sundays, shuttle buses which run parallel to the BPLRT network will be available (Refer to Annex A) for commuters as an alternative travel option. This is in addition to the existing bus services which already serve the Bukit Panjang town.
