A commuter, Daniel Lim tweeted at 6:34pm stating that the DTL stopped for a while:

Other tweets informed that the DTL train has been stuck at Bugis for the past 10 minutes at 6:47pm and also at Telok Ayer towards Expo at :708pm:

Other commuters also tweeted about the delay and their disappointments, but many thought that the DTL is operated by the Singapore Mass Rapid Transport (SMRT):

Julian Chow wrote in his tweets that the staff were clueless about the train delay and couldn’t give good information; However, Julian also thought that SMRT is the one responsible though he added that the staff were not to blame:

Other commuters directed their questions to SBS Transit, asking why the trains had long stops at each station:

Finally at 7:47pm a tweet from SBS Transit gave some info that the delay was caused by a signaling fault at DT32 Tampines Station:
