RUSH HOUR TRAIN DELAY ON NORTH-SOUTH EAST-WEST LINES

Rush hour crowds are experiencing yet another train breakdown on Tuesday morning (18 Apr). The breakdown was due to a track fault which affected both the North-South and East-West lines. SMRT initially informed of a 10-minute delay from Bishan to Khatib before increasing it to 20 minutes. It also told commuters that they will have to wait for an additional 15 minutes from Paya Lebar to Simei stations. Train service is still slow but still available, and SMRT has just updated that it is working to recover its services.

Finally, after 18 long years, the Bukit Panjang LRT system is set to undergo a major overhaul. Experts have come out and say in the wake of the decision to overhaul is that the system that needs most work is the trains and the signalling system itself.

The SMRT had also said that the current system is more suited for short distances on flat terrain, rather than gradients - which it passes through in the Bukit Panjang area now. Makes you wonder when they first did the LRT system, did they not take this into consideration?
