The Singapore Mass Rapid Transport (SMRT) trains experienced another disruptions this morning (7 Mar) resulting in slow speed and congestion along the North South Line (NSL), without clarification from SMRT.
The problem started early around 6am according to a commuter’s tweet:

Back to the daily grind squeezing in SMRT's unbelievably crowded trains. One thing better than London's subway is there's mobile reception underground here and thus there is distraction from the crazy crowd in the palm of my hand

The commuters posts on TATA SMRT Facebook also informed on the crowd at several stations and slow train speed without announcement:
Train fault at amk.. have to get down and wait for next train…fml

I experienced additional 4 minutes travelling time from Ang Mo Kio to Braddell. This is as of 8.37am
Another commuter also complained the lack of air condition in the train:

After 10am the problem was still not solved:
10 mins for the next train are you serious right now @SMRT_Singapore?! Instead of wasting time and effort changing your staff uniform can you fix your damn trains?!?!
