At 7.45am, SMRT sent a tweet informing commuters to expect a 10 minute delay in their travelling time.
Unfortunately, the wait proved longer.
Since its inception, this is the train services’ second delay due to a faulty door.
The first problem took place in Oct 2016.
A loose bolt caused a platform screen door to dislodge from its frame and come into contact with the side of an approaching train.
As a result, commuters suffered a 2-hour delay.
