Cognizant of the impact that long duration delays have on the commuting public, SMRT is focused on further reducing the incidences of delays that last more than 30 minutes.

  10. 10. Power Rail Replacement 10 Improved design for better reliability: • The bracket spacing is decreased to reduce the chance of power rail sagging • An improved ‘claw’ design so that power rails are better secured onto the insulator • The bolted Mid-Point Anchor design will be used as compared to the previous unsecured “drop-pin” type New safety element: • New inspection cover is introduced at the location of the insulator for checking of the claw.
  11. 11. 11 Progressive Trials • After extensive trials during engineering hours, limited trials during service hours began on 28 March 2017. • The deliberate and progressive roll out plan aims to operationalise the new signalling system on the NSL with minimum inconvenience to commuters. • The progressive roll out allows SMRT to address any issues immediately. Improvements to service • More reliable, advanced technology that allows trains to run closer together. • It increases the network’s capacity. With more trains, commuters can look forward to shorter waiting times at stations. New Signalling System
  12. 12. 12 New Trains • 45 new trains for the NSEWL have arrived in Singapore and are undergoing extensive tests. • Another 12 trains are due to arrive by 2019. • The 57 new trains will add to NSEWL’s existing fleet of 141 trains, bringing the total fleet strength to 198 trains. • The new trains have been progressively introduced for passenger service on the new signalling system from 16 April. • With more trains, commuters can expect shorter waiting times at stations. Midlife Upgrade of Trains • All 19 Siemens trains are being put through a mid-life upgrade. • Improvements to passenger comfort and trains’ performance for the second half of the trains’ lifespan. • Refurbished trains are expected to be progressively rolled out for passenger service by 2017.

  15. 15. 15 Escalator Refurbishment • Refurbish 233 escalators at 42 stations along the NSEWL network. Works began in August 2016, and is scheduled for completion by 2021. • The two main objectives are to replace ageing worn out parts such as traction machines, handrail drive, lubrication system and safety switches, and to add new safety features. Station Facilities Upgrade
