Commuters using a linkway connecting the North-East Line to the East-West Line at Outram Park MRT station were hit by a blackout on Monday morning.
SBS Transit said the power trip did not affect train services. Commuters were seen using their handphones to light the way as they made their way out of the station.
"To assist commuters walking along the walkway, staff armed with torchlights stationed themselves along the path to help provide lighting," said SBS Transit's senior vice-president for corporate communications, Ms Tammy Tan.
She added that SBS Transit is investigating the cause of the power fault.
Outram Park MRT is in darkness. People flashing torchlights and camera flashes everywhere.
