    SINGAPORE - A signal fault held up train service in both directions on the Circle Line for more than two hours during morning peak on Wednesday (Nov 15).

    Rail operator SMRT first tweeted at 6.28am, warning commuters that trains are moving slower between Buona Vista and HarbourFront stations.

    "We are investigating the fault," it added.

    In a second train delay on Wednesday morning (15 November), commuters were advised to add 30 minutes travel time between Jurong East and Joo Koon on the East West Line (EWL) due to a train fault at Joo Koon.

    Will the circle, be moving, bye, bye & bye!...SMRT who will own up, to the breakdowns now, bye, bye & bye!.will the circle, be moving, bye, bye, & bye!
    ( sung to the tune of " will the circle be unbroken)...

    Listen folks!...this is the new norm. If they start accessing the productivity level of the Singapore workers, please include the government inefficiencies plus the time & money lost, in getting to work.

    It's all John Tan's fault for not advising Khaw to do the honourable thing -hara-kiri.

    Love the change from "Delayed" to "Additional". Maybe they should change all to "superb", "normal" and "new normal"

    To be honest, the transport per se have not been the issue. The issue since the Saw era is competency, capability, cronyism, etc in Govt leadership, family members with vested interest and the efficacy of the current scholar system and the assumption and classification of potential at age 18.

    In Jan 2012, they made the move that incorporates the "Singapore Model" and not only has it failed miserably but they seemed lost at sea on how to fix it. Just a year ago, Khaw was giving press reports about improving KPIs, then he started massaging the message about the figures. Even then he was talking about bringing experts etc.

    Nobody really cares if the trains are slow, breakdown every now and then. We have gone past that stage. Its like Singapore soccer. Do we even think we can win a tournament even a minor one. And sports as a whole. We spend more time on the inapt administrators.

    I'm not using twitter. However I do use Spore's public transport.

    Who would have thought that you need a twitter account to find out if the trains are running on a day that I plan to go out.

    Straits times just reported a train to train collision that happen at 8am in jookoon station with injuries. No other details reported.

    This is becoming an international malu joke. I believe all asean leaders laughing at lhl during the recent meeting.

    Pity no dead sinkies yet.

    UPDATE: Twenty-three injured passengers have been conveyed to hospitals, majority sustained minor injuries.

    The platform at Joo Koon MRT Station has been partially cordoned off following an incident between 2 trains. SCDF vehicles were also spotted outside Joo Koon station, where a train fault was reported earlier on Wednesday morning.

    That’s exactly how they operate. All negatives are interpreted as positives.
