After the service disruption this morning on North-South Line (NSL) commuters on Jurong East Station had to endure another inconvenience on Thursday evening (7 Dec 2017).
Tweets from Thips informed that platform E and D towards Marina Bay via Woodlands was closed at Jurong East, and Cheryl Chewww tweeted a short video showing that commuters were squeezed to one platform going towards Marina Bay/Marina South Pier:
Jurong east platform d&e barricaded, no news or announcement. What?

There was no explanation given for the incident at the station and again there was no official statement from Singapore Mass Rapid Transport.
Other tweets also informed the disruption and the confusion of commuters:
