All-of-SMRT Approach to Keep Trains Moving

In SMRT, all staff have a part to play in keeping train services moving. SMRT managers and staff, not just those on the front line, also perform customer service duties during periods when large numbers of commuters are expected to use the network to attend events. All new staff joining SMRT are also familiarised with different aspects of commuter operations before taking up other assignments in the company.

Rail Renewal Milestone: 188,000 Sleepers Replaced

To enhance rail reliability and to provide better journeys for millions of commuters who travel with SMRT every day, we embarked on the biggest rail transformation programme since rail operations began in Singapore in 1987. SMRT Trains and the Land Transport Authority took three years to replace all 188,000 wooden sleepers with concrete ones on the North-South and East-West Lines.

#Allabouttrains The Communications-Based Train Control (CBTC) Signalling Simulation Facility in Bishan Depot enables off-site testing of the reliability and robustness of the new signalling system under different test scenarios. This facility allows for testing without affecting actual train and without resource constraints such as track access and train captains. You’ll find the latest version of the new signalling software is undergoing testing here.

From 29 April to 27 May 2018, trials of the new signalling system will be underway on the East-West Line on Sundays during passenger service hours. Thank you for your support as our engineers work hard to test the system. #SMRT #PressOn
