BPLRT breaks down for second time in one week; train sent to push it out gets stuck as well


Services on the Bukit Panjang LRT line broke down for the second time in one week, after train services were disrupted for 5 hours last Friday when a train crashed into and damaged a “signal stop tape” near Keat Hong station.

Today, a train broke down between Choa Chu Kang and Phoenix stations. Unfortunately, the train that was sent to assist and push the faulty train out became stuck, as well.

At 4.10pm, SMRT announced that would be no train services from Choa Chu Kang to Phoenix station due to a train fault.

35 minutes later, at 4.45pm, the transport operator announced that the fault had been fixed and that train services would resume as per normal.


  1. Despite all the comments from the authority that the LRT has faults and not designed for its used etc, strangely it has served the residents connecting to CCK for a good 15 or more years . Can a design that appears to work seem faulty over time ?
