Some passengers may also be required to pass through a metal detector, and have their personal belongings scanned by X-ray machines.

Things to note

Due to the additional time incurred from the security screening, passengers should add extra travelling time to their journeys.

Hence, do consider leaving your houses earlier as we’re sure you do not want to be late for your appointments.

In addition, you might not want to lug your bulky barang-barang as they may slow down the security screening process for you.

Stay prepared in case of emergencies

This security screening process is part of a regular emergency preparedness exercise, Exercise Station Guard, under LTA and public transport operator SMRT.

We certainly hope that this exercise will make members of the public be more prepared in cases of emergencies.
