When will the train entrance grab poles be removed?

It has been some time since it has been announced that the train entrance grab poles are to be removed to facilitate passengers entering and leaving the train. If I recall correctly, it has been announced in March this year. However to date, I did not see any changes to the trains for all the lines.

During peak hours, I have observed many times that many people, regardless if they are Singaporeans or not, will always crowd around the train entrance grab poles regardless if they need to hold it or not. Personally, I call them the "pole dancers" because they seem to wrap themselves around the train entrance grab poles, as if they are doing pole dancing.

A handful who has "no backbone" will lean against it, thus occupying more space than necessary. This "clustering" caused issues for people who are entering or leaving the train as these people are oblivious to their surroundings.

It has been more than 3 months since the announcement and I hope changes will come soon. It is super irritating to see people blocking the train entrance with this kind of behaviour as it affects other people. How would you feel if you are affected by such people blocking you from entering or leaving the train?
