Jurong East Modification Project - Phase 1 [Jurong East - Clementi]

The first phase of the Jurong East MRT Disruption between Jurong East to Cleemnti.It allowed for works on the old/new tracks of Jurong East East-West Line to proceed. Free shuttle buses were deployed to ferry the passengers to and from Jurong East/Clementi Stations

Signs and SMRT staffs/marshallers guiding the crowd to the shuttle buses:

While the queuing area for the crowd are (thankfully) not utiliised too.

Never expected a carpark to be also "disrupted" together with the MRT disruption. Actually, part of the carpark was closed in order ot create a walkway from the MRT to the Clementi pickup point.

On the 18-19th September, the second phase of MRT disruption will see the service between Bukit Batok and Jurong East being disrupted for modification works.
