Jurong East Modification Project - Phase 2 [Jurong East - Bukit Batok]

This week's MRT disruption sees the train connection between Jurong East and Bukit Batok temporarily stopped for Jurong East Modification Project.

Instead of a full bendy fleet, rigid buses were also used for the fleet. This was due to the average demand on the shuttles which resulted in some empty bendies running two weeks back.

Rigids were used to supplement the bendy fleet
While the usual fleet used two weeks back are used again.

The shuttle route follows SBS Transit's Express 506's routing, instead of a more shorter and more direct route that runs parallel to the tracks between Jurong East and Bukit Batok Interchange. This second phase of train disruption also marks the end of the disruptions for Jurong East Modification Project.
