A signalling fault caused delays on the Downtown Line this morning.
At 6.51am, SBS Transit tweeted that train service towards Expo and Bukit Panjang stations was delayed due to a signalling fault.
As a result, many said they reached their destinations an hour later than usual.
Commuters also expressed dismay that such faults could occur on the Downtown Line – a new rail development which was first opened for service in 2013, with Downtown Line 2 opened in 2015 and Downtown Line 3 opened in October last year.
There’s concern that SBS Transit could go the way of SMRT, which holds the record for the worst breakdowns in Singapore’s rail history.
