For the third time in five days, commuters have again experienced a delay in train services today as a train fault in In Toa Payoh caused services on the North-South Line to be disrupted.

While news of the delay was broadcast in stations, SMRT failed to notify commuters on their social media accounts, yet again. This means that commuters only found out that they will be delayed during their morning commute

At 7:32 this morning, one netizen posted that arrival time after Yishun going towards Marina South Pier would be delayed by 15-20 minutes, but a few minutes later, at 7:54, yet another netizen speculated that, because of overcrowding, delays would take more than 10 minutes.

Commuters have already lashed out at SMRT for failing to announce disruptions to train services on their Facebook and Twitter accounts for delays last Thursday, 9 November, when commuters had to wait as long as half an hour for their trains.
