SINGAPORE: Trains on the Sengkang West LRT loop will now run in both directions throughout the day, instead of only during the morning and evening peak hours.
Previously, trains on the Sengkang LRT ply either one of the two loops — the East Loop or the West Loop.
The trains were crowded, especially during the peak hours on weekdays and on weekends.
Cheng Lim LRT Station, which is on the Sengkang West LRT, also started operations on Tuesday.
SBS Transit hopes the move will better meet the travel needs of commuters.
It added that an additional 1,033 trips will be added to the line each week.
