This morning (3 July 2014), SMRT announced a disruption in train service due to damage to signalling equipment due to resleeping work on the North-South Line. (source)
We have imposed speed restrictions along the train tracks between Woodlands and Admiralty MRT stations. This is due to damage to trackside signalling equipment caused by a Road Rail Vehicle during resleepering work early this morning.
SMRT engineers are currently on ground working on repairing the fault. Passengers are advised to provision for an additional 20 minutes of travel time.
Though SMRT is saying that there was only speed restrictions in the train service but commuters did not feel the same way when they shared their experience on the transport company’s fanpage.
Due to re-sleepering works, an incident has occurred on the tracks going northbound between Yew Tee and Sembawang MRT stations. Engineers rectified the incident by 6am. Bus bridging and free bus services were activated and ceased around 6:30am.
