MRT breakdown affects 6,500 commuters

SINGAPORE: Some 6,500 commuters were affected by a train delay along the East-West MRT line on Friday evening. An SMRT spokesperson said a westbound train at Kallang MRT Station encountered a train fault and had to be taken out of service at 5.50pm. This disrupted the westbound train service between Kallang and Bugis for 20 minutes. But passengers on the westbound services between Kallang to Joo Koon experienced even longer waiting times due to the heavy evening peak-hour rush. To maintain service on unaffected stretches, trains were turned around at Eunos and Bugis. SMRT apologises for the inconvenience caused. It says passengers unable to complete their journeys can file a claim at any of its 68 stations within the next three working days.
