A minor delay occurred on the Southbound of the North South Line (NSL) early this morning, purportedly caused by a track failure between Kranji and Admiralty MRT station.
There was no explanation from transport operator, SMRT on its social media platform.
A commuter shared that trains were bunching up before entering Woodlands station.
The information was shared on the TATA SMRT platform, beginning slightly before 7am this morning:
Muhd Naz Farihin wrote at 6:54am: "Slight delay on the southbound on the north south line (NSL) with trains bunching before entering woodlands station, possibly due to wet weather."
Exley Yun wrote at 7:08am: "Delays expected on NSL because of track fault. Expect more traveling time as it is peak hour now."
John Robert Lee shared a post from MRT Singapore Service Information at 7:34; he wrote: "Expect delays on NSL, especially the Southbound site between CCK and Admiralty. This is due to track failure at Woodlands."
Passengers also informed and complained about the NSL train delay on Twitter:
@SMRT_Singapore y'all could have AT LEAST update the television saying there was a (5 min) delay on the North-south line to Marina

Due to track fault between Kranji and Admiralty, except some delay in your travelling time. Service had already started to normalise. #smrt
