SINGAPORE: Train service on the North East Line (NEL) commenced operation on Saturday morning according to its regular schedule.
In a statement on Saturday, SBS Transit said engineers had worked through the night to replace the broken bolt and conducted realignment works and inspection of the overhead power cables.
In all, 30 technical staff and four LTA engineering staff were involved in the works which took about two hours.
Thousands of commuters were affected by delays on the NEL on Friday as a result of two faults, one of which was a broken bolt, the other was a signalling fault.
During the delay, a total of 210 Goodwill Ambassadors were activated to assist in crowd control and assist passengers with enquiries on Friday evening.
Some 85 shuttle buses were also deployed to provide commuters with an alternative to the train service that was operating at 7.5 to 8 minutes frequency.
SBS Transit apologised once again to passengers who were affected by the delay.
