Two minutes later it Tweeted that the fault is cleared but advised commuters to expect delays as trains and stations were crowded.

At 8.04am however, SMRT Tweeted and asked commuters to factor in 10 mins additional travelling time from Botanic Gardens to Harbour Front. It attributed the delay to signalling fault.
