A faulty train along the North-South Line led to a peak-hour slowdown of train services over a 40-minute period. At 8.50am, the southbound train was travelling from Khatib to Yio Chu Kang when it developed a fault. For safety reasons, it was driven at slow speed to the latter station - a journey which some said took 20 minutes. There, everyone was asked to alight, said an SMRT spokesman.
