One of the two platforms at the Marina Bay station on the Circle Line will be closed from 15 May to 1 June 2021, in order to facilitate works to remove a section of redundant tracks.

Rail operator SMRT said on 15 April 2021 that it does not expect the move to have any impact on train services. It will also put-up signs to guide commuters.

"Should there be any delay between Marina Bay and Promenade stations, station signage will be available and announcements will be made on the Circle Line," SMRT added.

The redundant tracks that are no longer in use lead to a temporary maintenance facility near Bayfront station, SMRT said. It will start works to remove the tracks on 18 April 2021.
