Train breakdown on Sunday afternoon along the Circle Line

A train disruption occurred on Sunday (11 Nov) afternoon along the Circle Line (CCL). This time, while there were not many passengers because it was not a work day, SMRT was quick to inform about the incident,

SMRT informed in a tweet that there was no train service between Marina Bay/Dhoby Ghaut to Paya Lebar due to signal fault at 3:30pm:

As it was not a working day at a non peak hour, there were only a couple post on Twitter from commuters on the delay:

Twenty minutes later, at 3:50pm, SMRT again tweeted that the fault has been rectified, train service was progressively returning to normal. But travel time between Marina Bay/Dhoby Ghaut to Paya Lebar still needed additional 15 minutes:

And at 4:15pm SMRT informed that the CCL train service has resumed:

However, it looked like the effect of the delay still went on at 4:41pm, as a tweet showed a grumble about the breakdown. Akmal complained that despite all the early closure for maintenance the train still experienced breakdowns.
