Morning delay on North-South MRT line

Commuters on the North-South MRT line experienced delays in their travel this morning. 

Train operator SMRT said this was because of a track circuit failure on the south bound track between Jurong East and Kranji MRT stations. 

The problem was reported at 7.30am and SMRT engineers were deployed to investigate and rectify the fault. 

Trains had to travel at slower speeds between Kranji and Yew Tee MRT stations due to the track circuit failure. 

Free bus services for Admiralty, Sembawang, Yishun and Khatib MRT stations were activated at 8.30am.

SMRT said as of 8.32am, the faulty track circuit had been repaired and normal train service resumed. 

To ease congestion at affected stations, SMRT said it would continue to turn around empty trains.
