SINGAPORE - A train fault at Braddell station caused a delay on the North-South Line (NSL) on Wednesday evening (Oct 28).

At about 7.15pm, train operator SMRT tweeted that travelling time between Marina Bay and Ang Mo Kio stations was expected to be delayed by about 25 minutes.

SMRT also said that free bus services were available to affected commuters between Marina South Pier and Ang Mo Kio in both directions.

The rail operator later tweeted at about 7.40pm that train services had resumed, although the trains were still travelling at a slower speed than usual.

Earlier on Wednesday, a track fault affected train services on the East-West Line between Tampines and Pasir Ris stations.

On Monday, Oct 26, a new train being tested caused a power fault on the North-East Line during the morning peak hour, disrupting train services for nearly two hours.

Braddell station had also been in the news recently, due to a burst water pipe that resulted in a leakage at the station's south-bound platform. On that occasion, train services were not affected.
