Runners heading to the Standard Chartered Marathon during the early morning of Dec 4 will enjoy overnight MRT train services on the North-South East-West Lines and the Circle Line.

SMRT announced their partnership with the Singapore Sports Council (SSC), the organiser of the Standard Chartered Marathon Singapore, on Thursday.

Overnight train services will operate from about 1am to 5.30am, with a frequency of 15 minutes. Runners are expected to throng Orchard, Somerset, City Hall, HarbourFront and Esplanade stations - the closest stations to the three race start points.

To minimise noise pollution to residents living near elevated MRT stations, travelling speeds of trains will be reduced. The journey between each elevated station is expected to be lengthened by about two minutes. The extended train service does not apply to Bukit Panjang LRT and the Changi Airport extension (between Expo and Changi Airport stations).
