SMRT trains running along the East-West line from Pasir Ris to Joo Koon were delayed for up to 20 minutes due to ‘train fault’, causing angry commuters to post on Twitter to vent their anger and frustrations:
“The Thursday morning that started great till
#smrt decides to be dumb and terminate the train part way! Like really! What the heck..” – Callie
#smrt. 3 minutes? More like 10. Literally. Every morning there’s a glitch. Wtf is going on. Epically late again.” – Majorie Yeo
Another ‘minor’ disruption occurred two hours earlier when passengers in a packed train were asked to alight at Jurong East MRT station for no good reason causing congestion to an already packed station.
As usual, there are no news reports on the latest train disruptions except occasional updates on the Twitter of Channel News Asia. Neither did SMRT bother to explain to the public the reasons behind the disruptions which are happening on an alarmingly high frequency.
