The MRT network achieved 354,000 train-km between delays in the first quarter of this year, a noteworthy achievement, although the performance of the different lines was uneven.
A stretch of the North-South Line (NSL) was hit by delays due to a signalling system fault yesterday (June 12) morning.
Better contingencies and communication will go a long way in helping commuters bear with these issues.
SMRT says the checks are required to sort out “teething issues”.
Trains along four new stations at the East-West Line’s Tuas West Extension will begin plying from June 18.
