TRAIN STALLED AT NORTH-SOUTH LINE, 4 BREAKDOWNS IN 1 WEEK

Dear A.S.S. Editor

There has been another delay in the MRT line, this time affecting the North-South line, delaying train services between Yishun to Bishan. The disruption occurred during lunch time today, and commuters were advised that their trips would take about 30 minutes longer.

It was understood that a train had stalled due to loss of power, thus had to be towed back by another train. While the disruption had been cleared by 12:40 pm, it brings to questions again why trains are breaking down regularly one more time. On Thursday, a train had stalled at Tanah Merah, while last Tuesday saw two incidents, a signalling fault incident at the North-South line, and a train breaking down at the Bukit Panjang LRT line.

So, one week, four incidents happened, including today. What excuses this time from SMRT and LTA?
