On Tuesday (15 Jan) morning, commuters along the North South Line (NSL) towards Marina Bay experienced delays and slower speed in their commute due to track fault or track inspection, according information posted on the social media. SMRT did not post any official announcement concerning this incident.
On the Twitter platforms commuters posted their information and complains at nearly 8am:

On TATA SMRT Facebook platform, passengers also informed about the disruption:
Kalthoum Kang wrote at 7:59am: “Train delay on NSL heading to Marina Bay due to track inspection. Train stopped at AMK for a few mins.”
Some passengers added their information on Kathoum Kang’s post:
Anna Nemo Yap wrote at 8:27am: “Now also happen at Yishun toward Khatib.”
Hanisah Mohamed Husin wrote at 8:28am: “Traveling at a slower speed.”
At 8:42am Joanne Chua said the train still need additional 5 minutes; she wrote: “Sembawang towards Khatib. Additional 5 mins.”
No other information posted after Joane Chua’s; presumably the fault has been rectified and the service has returned to normal afterward.
