Sleeper Replacement (16/33)

A sleeper is simply a wooden or concrete beam placed transversely under railway tracks to support them. The MRT system in Singapore used to have timber sleepers that were designed to last up to 25 years. With numerous incidents of “Track Fault”, the sleepers that have shown signs of wear and tear have been replaced with concrete ones, which are made to last double the lifespan of timber sleepers. So far, 96,000 sleepers have been changed along the North-South line in the bid to ensure a smoother ride for commuters.
