2-car train system for Sengkang Punggol LRT

By Hetty Musfirah | Posted: 31 October 2012 1232 hrs

SINGAPORE: The Sengkang Punggol LRT will see a 40 per cent increase in capacity to meet rising ridership.


Another 16 new train cars will be added to the system, bringing the total fleet size to 57.

The Land Transport Authority will also be modifying 16 of the 41 existing single train cars to make them suited for two-car operations.

The new two-car train system will start running from 2016.

System upgrading and modification works will start by the middle of next year.

The LRT station at Choa Chu Kang will also undergo some improvement works.

Two platforms will be added specifically for commuters getting off the trains.

The aim is to let the existing platform located in the centre have more space to cater to boarding passengers.

There will also be additional fare gates and a new covered linkway from the LRT station to Lot 1 Shopping Mall.
