Improvement in LRT Network for Growing Commuters

Over time, SMRT has extended its train network and services while implementing innovative safety precautions for commuter convenience. Recently, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has made significant enhancements to the Sengkang LRT station platform for both the East and West Loops. This means there are now designated platforms for commuters heading towards the East or West loops.

Previously, the Sengkang LRT station platform involved each platform serving both loops in an anti-clockwise direction back to the Sengkang LRT Station.

Now, commuters can conveniently queue on Platform 1 or 2, which are demarcated with colored lines indicating the respective loop, facilitating easier boarding.

In addition to designated platforms, residents of Sengkang and Punggol will experience shorter waiting times as the line fleet will be boosted by 25 new 2-car trains. This will ensure an ideal frequency of trains arriving at the respective stations, meeting the commuting requirements of many people.

Conclusion
