ANOTHER DELAY ON THE MRT EAST WEST LINE, TRACK FAULT BLAMED THIS TIME

Dear A.S.S. Editor

SMRT reported that there is a delay in the train services between City Hall to Dover Station on the East West Line. At 8.32am, it tweeted that service would be delayed by 25 minutes. As of 9.14am, SMRT tweeted that the delay was still 25 minutes. This was revised to 20 minutes at 9.56am.

This delay is blamed on a track circuit fault at Buona Vista station, which is an interchange for the East-West Line and the Circle Line. Train services at all stations are still available, but SMRT advised to add more minutes to the travelling time. SMRT are currently working to recover the service at normal levels.

Nothing new, just another breakdown of the MRT. This breakdowns seem like a problem too far for the SMRT and LTA to solve. So, we have to live with it?
