Blackout at City Hall MRT station
Posted by temasektimes on July 6, 2012
Just after Transport Minister Lui Tuck Yew heaped generous praises on members of the Committee of Inquiry (COI) for doing a ‘good’ work analyzing the two major SMRT breakdowns last year, a major screw-up hit SMRT again.
Parts of City Hall MRT station have been hit by a power blackout at about 1.30pm on Friday, causing confusion and panic among some commuters.
Speaking to queries from the media, SMRT said the blackout affected the platforms serving the northbound and west-bound trains.
It explained that its staff are fixing the problem and due to the power trip, it could not alert commuters, but staff are using loud hailers to inform them of the blackout.
