Happy Vesak!

May 16, 2019

    It’s going to be a long weekend.

    Long weekend means a good opportunity for everyone to take a long rest and/or holiday domestically or abroad. But it also means our public transport engineering work is best done during long weekends. Besides major works on MRT there will be also an extension of service hour on eve of Vesak.

    1) North South Line (NSL): No Service between Woodlands (NS9) and Yishun (NS13) on 18 & 19 May (Saturday & Sunday), and Woodlands (NS9) and Ang Mo Kio (NS16) on 20 May (Monday)
