Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) and SBS Transit will launch bi-directional services on Punggol West Loop, starting 29 September.
The bi-directional services are expected to significantly reduce travel time and crowding during peak hours on the LRT linking Sam Kee to Punggol Town Centre station by about 15 minutes.
To further keep pace with developments in these areas, SBS Transit will enhance LRT services for the Punggol East, Sengkang West and Sengkang East Loops by injecting an additional single-car train, or by running a two-car train instead of a single-car train at selected times of the day. The increased capacity enables the SPLRT to better serve the growing ridership in Sengkang and Punggol.
Punggol West Loop is the third LRT line links commuters from the residential areas to Punggol MRT station on the North-East Line and the Punggol Bus Interchange.
