Round and about the Circle Line

CIRCLE Line trains will start rolling in two weeks, with the first five stations set to open their doors on May 28.

The estimated 55,000 commuters who will use the service daily can expect trains to run at a frequency of one every three minutes to four minutes during peak hours.

Besides serving residents and several nearby schools in areas such as Marymount and Lorong Chuan, the stations will also showcase works by local artists.

For now, seven three-car trains will ply the 5.7km stretch during rush hour.

More trains will come on board when the remaining 24 stations in the Circle Line open to the public from next year onwards.

Yesterday, The Straits Times took an eight-minute train ride from Bartley to Marymount and checked out each of the five stations.
