SMRT Corporation, a public transport operator in Singapore said on Saturday that the train services along the Bukit Panjang LRT line are unavailable due to a train fault. The service disruption was first announced on Twitter.
According to SMRT, the trains are not running on both Service A and B due to the fault. However, it added that free bus bridging services are available.
On Facebook, SMRT said that an LRT train had stopped in between Phoenix and Bukit Panjang stations at around 9.45 am. But, then the train was pulled back to the depot and the service was resumed. But, again a second train was stalled at the same location and the disruption was announced at 11.12 am.
"As this second train could not continue service, around 10 passengers were guided by staff safely to the nearest station," SMRT told Channel NewsAsia.
The authorities added that the engineers are working to move the halted train back to the depot and are also checking the tracks to identify the exact cause of the incident.
