Service disruption continues till evening rush hour; No train services on Joo Koon and Tuas Link on Thursday

Following the huge backload of passengers on Circle Line (CCL), East West Line (EWL) and North South Line (NSL) due to EWL’s train collision at Joo Koon and CCL’s signal fault, commuters are subjected to further delays in their journey during Wednesday afternoon and evening, especially on EWL and NSL.

SMRT announced at around 7.30pm that train service between Tuas Link and Joo Koon will be suspended on Thursday with free bus bridging service available all day.

At 1:58pm the Singapore Mass Rapid Transport (SMRT) tweeted there was no train service between Boon Lay and Tuas. Free regular bus and bridging bus services are available:

Though SMRT announced service disruption was only along EWL but several commuters tweeted their displeasure over the announcement, stating that the trains are not moving and that there is also service disruption at NSL.

At 17:05 SMRT again tweeted their delay, this time due to ‘fewer trains serving the NSL this evening’:

And to top its last tweet SMRT again posted at 6:29pm:
