Slight delays expected at selected CCL stations on two Sundays

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

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

In a statement, SMRT said on Sunday, May 12th, Marymount and Caldecott stations will operate with a single platform from 6 to 10 am. 

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

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

SMRT said signs will be put up at affected stations to inform passengers of the new platform arrangements. 

Announcements will also be made and staff deployed on the ground.

The cable replacement programme started this year. 

It's 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 end this year.
