SMRT: NORTH-SOUTH & EAST-WEST LINE HAD BEST RECORDED PERFORMANCE IN THEIR 29Y HISTORY

At the first Singapore Rail Technology Conference, SMRT chief executive officer Desmond Kuek said that the North-South and East-West MRT lines achieved 144,000 train-km before breakdown last month (October); the best recorded performance in the 29-year history of the two lines.

Since the inception of the Circle Line, it has clocked 233,000 train-km before breakdown of more than 5 minutes.

Mr Kuek acknowledge that the record is still off the 2018 target of 400,000 train-km before breakdown for the rail network here.

According to the rail reliability figures provided by the Land Transport Authority last week (Nov 9), there was one disruption per 158,000 train-km travelled for the entire MRT network here in the first six months of this year.

The East-West line was the worst performing line with four major breakdowns of more than 30 minutes in the first half of the year.
