A commuter crowd was seen at Jurong East MRT Station on Tuesday afternoon (Feb 17), after a train fault at that station disrupted train services from Lakeside to Clementi. SMRT said at 11.40am that services had resumed.
The train operator had issued a tweet at 11.27am saying: "Due to a train fault at Jurong East, there will be no train service from Lakeside to Clementi on the East-bound towards Pasir Ris."
It had earlier tweeted at 11.11am, which said: "Due to a train fault at Jurong East, there will be 20-min delay from Joo Koon to Jurong East on the East-bound line towards Pasir Ris." It added that bus-bridging service was available between Lakeside and Clementi in both directions.
Free bus services to Clementi include 105, 52, 78 and 183, while the bus service to Lakeside is 98, according to an on-site Channel NewsAsia reporter.
Some commuters also took to social media to highlight the disruption. Twitter user @hauhtiz, for example, called on SMRT to "do something" about such train disruptions.
