- Line 2: Trains will run every 4 minutes and 44 seconds (this will achieve over 12 trains per hour on this line).
Trains will continue to run in improved frequencies all day from 20 June 2015 through to 22 June 2015:
- Line 1: There should be a train every 5 minutes and 49 second (making it just over 10 trains per hour on this line).
Line 2: Trains will run every 4 minutes 57 seconds (this is around 12 trains per hour on this line).
