North-South line disrupted on Saturday morning

This is the third service breakdown this week, just two days after a major glitch affected 127,000 passengers during rush hour on Thursday evening.

A spokesman from SMRT said this morning's breakdown is likely due to a similar problem that caused Thursday's disruption.

SMRT confirmed earlier this afternoon that it had removed five defective trains from the tunnel.

The Straits Times also reported that passengers in one train that was stuck in the tunnel had to walk through the tunnel to the nearest station.

Disruption to MRT services on North-South line
A second MRT disruption in two days affected thousands of evening peak-hour commuters.

Train services on both directions of the North-South Line from Marina Bay to Braddell stations were disrupted on Thursday evening, when 40m of the power rail was damaged between City Hall and Dhoby Ghaut MRT stations.

While some passengers found themselves in a fix as they were left without a means to get home, others fared worse when they were left stuck in a stuffy and suffocating train which stopped mid-track.
