MRT SIGNAL FAULT CAUSES TRAIN DELAY ON NSL LINE AGAIN

Another new day, another train delay. Despite all the testing done by SMRT, this morning, there is another delay happening Choa Chu Kang and Jurong West stations on the North South line.

SMRT have advised that this morning's train delay is due to a signalling system fault. Commuters are expected to add 20 mins of travelling time between the two stations.

Are you affected again?

OK TO TEST MRT SIGNAL DURING SCHOOL HOLIDAY, DON'T MAKE A FUSS

I guess everyone have been warned that there will be more train disruptions coming up as they need to test signal during the peak hours too. The reason they are doing this in June is because there many typical Singaproeans that will overseas during this period and all commuter ought to understand this. A temporary inconvenience is essential for long term convenience it's better to disrupt or even close the entire system now than during school term days. Now, I understand that during disruption is extremely difficult to get a taxi and grab and uber will surge, please understand that everyone wants to get home quickly and needs a cab, so those that are not in the bad rush, like students, singles and army boys please take the bus so that they don't add on to the surge. So please, stop complaining about train disruptions and move on, be positive.

EXPECT MORE DELAYS ON THE MRT, AS WHOLE DAY TESTING ARE UNDERWAY

Unfortunately, even after years of testing, they still have not satisfactorily solve these issues. And to make things worse, even the newer train stations that should not suffer from wear and tear, are facing some sort of problems. In view of this, the SMRT have also recently announced that they were doing system checks on their North-South and East-West lines, which are the oldest MRT lines in Singapore. SMRT have also announced that carrying out the checks during the June holidays is the best to maximise their ability to aggressively run tests.

Now the latest news coming out from SMRT is that all-day performance checks of the new signalling system on the North-South Line are necessary to "work out teething issues". What this means is that SMRT is telling us be prepared to face delays from trains at any time of the day. They don't know when it will happen, but it will happen. Much like that other tagline, "Not if, but when". Same with the MRT system, not if disruptions will occur, but when. So be prepared.

5 EASY STEPS TO MAKE SMRT GREAT & RELIABLE AGAIN, AGREE OR NOT?

Sick and tired of the perpetual MRT breakdowns due to different kinds of track fault, signal fault, signal testing etc? Here is a 5 step plan to make SMRT Great Again! The Transport Minister's whole family has to take public transport to work, this will ensure he feels the full effects of his inept ability to solve our public transportation. When his children and wife complain of the unreliable public transport causing them to be late for exams and appoints, only then will he work doubly hard to solve our problems.

EXPECT MORE TRAIN DELAYS AS SIGNAL TESTINGS CONTINUES

LTA and SMRT are quickly putting in their excuses early, as commuters are left in the dark how much longer the signalling tests will continue, and how much longer they will have to suffer from train delays. Commuters are also puzzled as to why the trains are being tested during peak period, where any kinds of delays will affect thousands of people who just want to go home.

In a joint statement, the LTA and SMRT said that Two unrelated faults on the North-South Line on Thursday (June 1) and Friday (June 2) evening were uncovered during system-level performance checks for the new signalling system for the line. What this means is that they were both not expecting the delays to happen, which shows a lack of foresight. What they are trying to say is also to expect more of such delays, because the problems found were not easily solved.
