Signalling faults cause delays along Circle Line

SINGAPORE — Two signalling faults along the Circle Line occurred early this morning (Sept 26), one after another.

This caused a train between Kent Ridge and Haw Par Villa MRT stations in the direction towards HarbourFront Station to stop.

Updating its Facebook page, SMRT said it is a rare but known fault that it has been working with the Land Transport Authority and its contractor to resolve.

The first signalling fault, which occurred at 6.46am, caused the train to stop and there was a loss of traction power between Farrer Park and HarbourFront MRT station.

SMRT said the system was restored at 6.58am.

The next train, however, encountered a similar signalling fault at 7.03am at the same location.

SMRT said that at 7.15am, normal train service towards HarbourFront station resumed ahead of the peak hour. Trains headed towards Dhoby Ghaut and Marina Bay stations on the Circle Line were not affected. CHANNEL NEWSASIA
