SINGAPORE - SMRT has released the timings at which train services at the 13 stations along the North-South and East-West MRT lines will start on Sundays between June 5 and Dec 18.

The public transport operator had announced last month that train services at these stations would start an hour later at 7am on Sundays, "to allow engineers more time to carry out track maintenance and renewal works on the western sector of the network".

The 13 stations are those from Joo Koon to Queenstown station on the East-West Line and from Jurong East to Bukit Gombak station on the North-South Line.

SMRT has advised commuters who need to travel before 7am during the affected period to use existing bus services to get to other MRT stations or use the Circle Line and Downtown Line to get to the city.

Additionally, there will be a new parallel bus service plying the route between Joo Koon and Bukit Gombak stations (via Jurong East station) in both directions. The service will operate with a 10-minute interval between 5.30am and 7am on Sundays from June 5 to Dec 18.
