SINGAPORE - Bus services 181, 240, 241 and 243G will have their operating hours extended on April 14 and 21 (both Fridays).

All four services will run till 1am from the Boon Lay bus interchange.

The extension of operating hours is to cater for the early closure of the MRT stations between Lakeside and Joo Koon on the East-West Line, SBS Transit said in a statement on Wednesday (April 12).

The early closure of the four stations - Lakeside, Boon Lay, Pioneer and Joo Koon - on both days is to facilitate track maintenance and renewal work at railway junctions, operator SMRT said on March 31.

It will give engineering staff double the time to carry out maintenance work and to replace rails worn out by wear and tear at the critical junctions.
