Train fault caused 8.5-minute delay at peak hour

SINGAPORE - A train fault caused an 8-and-a-half minute delay for passengers at peak hour yesterday evening reported the Straits Times today. The report said about 2,880 passengers were affected by the delay on the East-West line towards Pasir Ris that happened around 7.25pm last night. An SMRT spokesman said passengers on an east-bound train were asked to alight at City Hall MRT station due to a train fault. To minimise disruption, passengers on a west-bound train were asked to alight at Bugis MRT station so the train could turn around and serve east-bound passengers, the spokesman added.
