Singapore Modifications

The Singapore Mass Rapid Transit or MRT is a rapid transit system that forms the backbone of the railway system in Singapore, spanning the entire city-state.  The network has since grown rapidly as a result of Singapore’s aim of developing a comprehensive rail network as the main backbone of the public transport system in Singapore.

Part of the Metro is divided into the East/West Line and the North/South Line. To increase capacity on the North/South line, two new lines and a new platform have been added at Jurong station.  Before being put into revenue service, stagework modifications were required to both the East/West line and the North/South line signalling.

Zircon had been assisting our client with modifying the control system to support these stageworks.  The work has now been completed and was successfully commissioned in September without fault.
