SINGAPORE: There will be some service changes to the Circle Line this month to facilitate power cable change works.

As a result, commuters may face travel delays of up to 10 minutes, says SMRT.

On Sunday, May 12, Marymount and Caldecott stations will operate with a single platform from 6am to 10 am, says an SMRT statement.

Trains going in either direction will stop at the same platform, as the other side will be closed.

There will be similar arrangements at Botanic Gardens and Farrer Road stations from 6am to 10am on Sunday, May 19.

SMRT says signs will be put up at affected stations to inform passengers of the new arrangements. Announcements will also be made and staff deployed on the ground.

The cable replacement programme started this year.

It is aimed at minimising potential power outage to boost the reliability of the train system.

Works at all 30 stations are expected to be completed by the end of this year.   - CNA/ir
