Train service disruption along EWL and NSL on Tuesday morning

This Tuesday morning (17 Apr), train service was first disrupted along the East West Line (EWL) followed by the North-South Line (NSL), again without official information given on its media platforms by the transport operator, Singapore Mass Rapid Transport (SMRT)

At 8:30am Joepan posted a tweet wondering why the train stopped for too long at Eunos:

Cheng Hyork informed there was a train fault on EWL, causing delay on the West bound trains:

Joepan tweeted again that his train stopped at Paya Lebar for more than one minute; there was no announcement and the train kept stopping:

Other passengers also tweeted complains on the EWL delay, Mitaaaa wrote it was a train fault:


At 8:59am AA informed the train delay along NSL, complaining her train had stopped for 5 minutes at Somerset, making her late:

And it seemed the journey was not running smoothly for 수고했어요:

Other tweets from commuters also informed of the delay on the North-South Line:

Jacquelyn R Lim, answering posts on TATA SMRT Facebook, also informed on the NSL delays:

Train stopped for past 10mins already at Khatib towards Sembawang. Earlier announcement said train in front still there so stop for a while but later announced 10mins delay estimated. I have hopped off the train to take bus so unsure if it has started. My friend in Toa Payoh now similar issue. Approx 905am I was at Khatib.
