SINGAPORE - Commuters can expect train speeds on the North-South Line to go up from the fourth quarter of this year, said Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew on Tuesday.

The replacement of sleepers along the line that hold the tracks in place should be finished by the middle of next year, he added.

Mr Lui gave the update after observing sleeper replacement works along the tracks between Bishan and Ang Mo Kio station early Tuesday morning.

Operator SMRT temporarily reduces train speeds along stretches of track where sleepers have been replaced as a safety precaution.
