The early closure of สล็อต ค่าย SLOTXO เล่นยังไงให้ได้เงิน some stations on
the North-East Line scheduled for next month will no longer be needed after
replacement works for the MRT line's power system was completed ahead of
schedule, transport operator SBS Transit said on Tuesday (Apr 27). 

 

In a Facebook post, SBS Transit said the engineering team responsible for
the overhead power system had completed the replacement of all the 132
insulators for the system ahead of time. 

 

This means there will be no early closures for the stations between Harbourfront
and Dhoby Ghaut, which were originally planned for May 7 and 8.

 

Earlier this month, SBS Transit had early announced early closures for some
North-East Line stations on some Fridays and Saturdays in April and May, to allow
for "intensified replacement works" on the insulators of the overhead catenary
system that supplies power to the trains. 

 

This came after train service on the line was disrupted for almost three hours on
Mar 28 due to a power fault caused by a faulty insulator at Buangkok station. 

 

The North-East Line is the only MRT line in Singapore that uses such an overhead
power system. 

 

SBS Transit noted on Tuesday that scaffolding had to be set up within the tunnels
to allow its engineering team to work at height to carry out the replacement
works.
