SMRT: Train disruption due to "one-under" incident
East bound train services on the East West Line between Queenstown and Outram Park stations have resumed, following a series of stoppages.
Operator SMRT says the disruptions were to allow Police to investigate an incident that occurred on the tracks between Redhill and Tiong Bahru stations.
Meanwhile, Police have said that a Singaporean Chinese in his 20s was found lying motionless in the tunnel between Redhill and Tiong Bahru stations.
He was later pronounced dead.
An SMRT spokesperson said that an SMRT train hit the man but could not confirm whether that led to his death.
Train services between Queenstown and Outram Park stations on both bounds were temporarily disrupted at 8.23pm for about 11 minutes.
Eastbound services were thereafter suspended intermittently between 9.14pm and 10.17pm, to facilitate the Police and the Civil Defence Force works.
Westbound services were still available, but at a lower frequency.
Bus bridging and free bus services were available until 10.30pm at designated boarding points outside affected stations.
SMRT says passengers who could not continue with their journey because of the disruption can get a refund at the Passenger Service Centre in any of SMRT's 83 stations in the next 14 days.
