    • Delays on North-South Line due to train fault at Toa Payoh

      SINGAPORE: Commuters on the North-South Line on Tuesday morning (Nov 14) were affected by delays during rush hour, with stations announcing a train fault near Toa Payoh.

      Facebook user WB LM posted that he boarded the train at Sembawang before 6.40am and the train was moving normally, but it stopped for about three to five minutes at each station. He reached Khatib at 6.53am, he said. The estimated travel time between the two stations, according to the TransitLink website, is usually six minutes.

      There was an estimated 15 minutes' delay in travel time from Yishun to City Hall, he added.

      WB LM also said his train cabin was leaking water at two spots.

      The delay persisted for more than an hour, with multiple commuters taking to social media to post about announcements estimating delays of between 10 and 20 minutes along the line.

      As of 8.50am, SMRT had not posted any updates about the train fault on its social media channels.

      Channel NewsAsia has reached out to SMRT for comment.

    • 23 injured by collision between 2 trains at Joo Koon station


      Twenty-three passengers sustained minor injuries and had to be taken to nearby hospitals after a collision between two trains at Joo Koon MRT station on Wednesday morning (Nov 15). 

      The Singapore Civil Defence Force said in a Facebook post that they were alerted to the incident near Joo Koon MRT station at 8.33am.

      "SCDF resources are at the scene attending to the injured. Twenty-three injured passengers have already been conveyed to the hospitals, majority sustained minor injuries," SCDF added.


      About half the injured passengers were taken to the National University Hospital. Earlier on Wednesday, a commuter by the name of Mei Anne wrote on Facebook that the collision caused her and other passengers to fall on their backs.

      The first major collision between MRT trains took place on August 5 1993, when a front-to-back collision occurred between two trains at Clementi MRT station. The accident, which took place at 7.50am, left 156 injured commuters.

      Several passengers were flung against panels and steel railings inside the train, while others were piled on top of one another. 

      An east-bound train from Jurong had reportedly stopped at Clementi MRT station for two minutes longer than scheduled due to a technical fault. It was then hit by another train. 

      Operations were affected at three MRT stations: Clementi, Buona Vista and Commonwealth and services resumed within a day after intensive checks by the MRT Corporation engineers.

      This story is developing.
