A train delay occurred this Friday (7 June) morning along the North South Line.
According to a commuters’ post on TATA SMRT Facebook,, it was said to be due to a power failure between Braddell station and Novena station.
There was no official information given by SMRT on its social media platforms, but station announcements said the travel time would take additional 10 minutes in both directions. There was no free bus service mentioned.
