UPDATE: As of 7.55pm, SBS Transit has reported that there is no train service at Clarke Quay, Little India, Boon Keng, Farrer Park and Dhoby Ghaut stations. Free bus services are available.

Train services on the North-East Line have been delayed this evening due to a train fault at Clarke Quay station towards Punggol.

Today’s train fault comes one day after train service breakdowns occurred on the East-West Line, North-South Line and Circle Line yesterday. Nearly 30 people were injured in the East-West Line incident yesterday when two trains collided at Joo Koon station.

At 6.20pm, SBS Transit told commuters travelling on both directions of the line to add 10 minutes additional travel time to their estimated duration of travel. This was later revised to 15 minutes, in a subsequent tweet around 6.30pm.

 

Meanwhile, photos and videos of the ensuing congestion taken by irate commuters are circulating online:
