Well yes, but SBS is more experienced in fully automated metro line.
By the way, Downtown Line is awarded to SBS.

Some old news but it regarding the Circle Line.

Quote:
Circle Line now open for boarding
By Dylan Loh | Posted: 08 October 2011 1053 hrs


SINGAPORE: Singapore's Circle Line rail network got off to a start on the first day of full operations, with the remaining 12 train stations from HarbourFront to Caldecott opening on Saturday morning.

It's also the first day of higher fares for bus and train rides, with adults who use the EZ-link card paying about two cents more per ride.

But that didn't stop self-professed trainspotter Jay Tan from hopping on.

The 23-year-old waiter took one of the first trains out, just after 5.30am.

He said: "Well I'm on one of the first trains out and it's been a smooth journey so far. Very few people on board. I suspect because most would prefer sleeping in on a Saturday morning. But not reporters like me, my hardworking camera crew and of course, a few train enthusiasts.

"I'm too excited, I (couldn't) sleep last night ... I wanted to board the first train. I also like to board the bus, take a bus photo at the bus stop outside the bus interchange doing bus spotting or trainspotting, sometimes. Like either the new train or new bus, I really like it very much."

Another commuter Samuel Gan said: "The air-con was like malfunctioning because like one moment was like you are in the desert, then suddenly in the other moment like you are in the Arctic."

Several commuters said they'll switch to the Circle Line.

A girl said:" "The bus service is very crowded, quite jam after work. So I need to use this."

A man said: "It's a very good connector to people and places. I really am glad that it is done after so many years."

Another commuter shared the same sentiment: "It's very convenient for me. Otherwise, I need to take the bus."

With plenty of other passengers expected, preparations were in place to welcome them.

Jack Chan, manager, Station Operations, SMRT Rail Operations Division, said: "We have over 200 over staff who have gone through six months of intensive training. (Additionally) they have actually also gone through three months of trial running to lead-up until today.

"(Also) we have employed about 50 over staff for the first week for this opening, most of which we have concentrated at the interchanges because we expect more people at these stations."

With the Circle Line fully open, travel time can be shortened by up to 17 minutes.

Other news regarding the MRT system.

Quote:
New entrances at 3 MRT stations
Posted: 13 October 2011 1225 hrs


SINGAPORE: Commuters can expect new station entrances equipped with fare gates and ticketing machines at Clementi, Commonwealth and Queenstown MRT stations.

The Land Transport Authority (LTA) said this is part of the upgrading work in the pipeline for these stations.

Each station will also have an additional pedestrian link bridge linking the station to pavements on both sides of the roads.

LTA said these improvements will alleviate congestion on the existing link bridges especially during morning and evening peak periods.

Works are expected to start in the middle of next year and be completed by mid-2015.

To improve ventilation at elevated MRT stations, LTA will also be fitting all 36 elevated MRT stations with fans.

Depending on the structure of the station roof, LTA said it will install either high volume low speed fans or jet fans.


The installation is expected to start early next year and is expected to complete by the first quarter of 2013.

DT22 Jalan Besar renders

Here are some latest renders of the new Downtown Line 3 station Jalan Besar. Formerly, it was given the temporary name (working name) of Sungei Road. After a poll, the final name of Jalan Besar was given, to clear up any confusion.

Bayfront and Marina Bay stations to open next Saturday

AsiaOne
Saturday, Jan 07, 2012

SINGAPORE - Two new MRT stations will open next Saturday to connect commuters to the Bayfront area, The Straits Times reported today. But the journey will be a complicated one.

The Bayfront station will let commuters access easily the Marina Bay Sands (MBS) integrated resort and Gardens by the Bay. Four entrances at the station are connected to MBS. Another entrance leads visitors to Gardens by the Bay, which is due to open in June this year.

The Marina Bay station will be an interchange for the North-South and Circle Lines as the area around the station is currenty undeveloped.

The two stations however will be served during peak hours by alternate trains during peak hours and during off-peak times, by shuttle trains, the report said.

Commuters must board the right train to the get to the two stations.

PEAK HOURS

During weekday peak hours (from 7.30am to 9.30am and 5.30pm to 7.30pm), trains from Harbourfront will alternately end at Dhoby Ghaut or, via Bayfront, at Marina Bay.

An SMRT spokesman told the paper that commuters can keep a lookout for signs on both the platform and in the train that indicates where the train is heading.

From Mountbatten station onwards, announcements will be made on the train to inform commuters of the train's last stop, the report added.

OFF-PEAK HOURS

During off-peak hours, things get a little less straightforward. There will be a shuttle train service that runs from Marina Bay station to Stadium station. This means commuters going towards the two new stations should alight at either Stadium, Nicoll Highway or Promenade stations to board the shuttle train.

Trains alternating between Dhoby Ghaut and Harbourfront will run at a frequency of 3.5 minutes during peak hours. The shuttle trains which operate during off-peak hours will run at a frequency of seven minutes.

An SMRT spokesman added that the shuttle service made the most operational sense as there are a limited number of trains available.

Here is the some news regarding a tender for new trains for the North-East Line and the Circle Line and signalling for the North-South Line and the East West Line.

Quote:
LTA to purchase more trains for NEL, CCL
Posted: 01 February 2012 1443 hrs


SINGAPORE: The Land Transport Authority (LTA) has awarded the contracts to purchase 18 North East Line (NEL) trains and 16 Circle Line (CCL) trains to enhance rail capacity in the coming years.

The contracts for the procurement of the new NEL and CCL trains have been awarded to Alstom Transport S.A. / Alstom Transport (S) Pte Ltd Consortium. The total value of the contracts is S$368.9 million.

It was previously announced that the NEL would receive 12 new trains. That is now increased to 18 new trains and these will be delivered progressively from 2015. The LTA said the trains will cater to projected demand and increase the NEL's peak capacity by about 70 per cent.

As for the CCL, the 16 new trains are expected to increase the peak capacity of the line by about 40 per cent when the new trains are added progressively from 2015. This will help meet ridership growth and enhance service levels of the CCL.

Separately, SMRT has awarded the contract to replace the signalling system on the North-South East-West Line (NSEWL) to Thales Solutions Asia Pte Ltd. The contract is valued at S$195 million.

SMRT said the project, which will be completed in phases from 2016, will make it possible for trains to run at an improved frequency of 100 seconds, down from 120 seconds currently. This would mean reduced waiting times for commuters.

The replacement work covers more than 100 kilometres of tracks on the NSEW Lines.

The new signalling system to be used will be a "Communications-Based Train Control" system. A train's precise location and speed are tracked and safety gaps between trains are not based on signal blocks but between trains. Such a system can reduce the time gap between trains entering and exiting stations by 20 seconds, to 100 seconds, during peak periods.

The existing signalling system on the NSEW Lines is a "fixed-block" system that divides the tracks into blocks and can detect where a train is when it moves into a new section. For safety reasons, trains must travel at least one signalling block apart from each other. With this existing system, a time gap of at least 120 seconds is required between a train that is leaving a station and the next one that is entering.

The LTA has also awarded the contract for the signalling of the Tuas West Extension valued at S$40.3 million.

I was about to ask if they were men.

Are they promoting a gay club or something...?

They are men, aren't they?

They seem to be men, but it's difficult to be sure. Does it matter somehow?

Singapore City’s subway system is growing satisfactorily year by year form their first run. The progress is very satisfactory.

However, most people think that Singapore City’s metro was first introduced PSD, but it is not true. At first it was introduced in St. Petersburg, but it was metal door. Singapore City introduced glass doors, which was first in world, and then other cities followed it.

Now we are expecting for NS, EW and CC extensions & the new DT, TS and ER lines. Among them, NS, CC extensions and planned DT line will be very important lines, as those cross busy parts of the capital city and can alleviate traffic problems. There are some questions relating this –

1) Has the construction of DT, TS & ER lines started? Please post some photos.
2) Will those lines be underground or elevated?
3) I heard all those lines will be ready within 2015, is it true? I think not.
4) Will those lines are the final extension of Singapore City metro?

Note: The questions I wrote here was never asked me before. If an urban-rail fan will do it, I’ll not repeat.
