The MTA will perform nighttime repairs on the R train as part of the Fastrack program in Brooklyn for a second straight week.

There will be no service between 36th Street in Sunset Park and 95th Street in Bay Ridge from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. between Monday and Friday morning. Riders will have to use free shuttle buses. The R will also skip four other stops in Brooklyn: Union Street, 4th Avenue-9th Street, Prospect Avenue, and 25th Street in both directions.

The D and N will run local so that straphangers can use those stations. Last week, the MTA said it cleaned almost 9,000 feet of track on the R line, removed 37,000 pounds of debris and painted platform edges.
