Anna wondered about the use of a month early closure-late opening for maintenance & improvement works from 1 June to 1 July 2018:
@SMRT_Singapore wow add 15 mins for signalling fault again, makes me wonder what’s ur point of early closure late opening

However, not long after, the NSL train services appeared to have gone back to normal since there were no more complaints on social media platforms.
