SINGAPORE - Train services between Boon Lay and Joo Koon MRT stations on the East-West line went down briefly on Tuesday (Dec 6).

This was due to a signalling fault at Joo Koon, SMRT said in a tweet at 7pm.

It added in a tweet at 7.11pm that train services have resumed, but advised commuters to add 10 minutes' travel time between Jurong East and Joo Koon MRT stations.

However, some online commenters say the trains are still stuck.

Jimmy Seah CH said in a Facebook comment that his train was still stuck between Jurong East and Clementi MRT stations at 7.22pm.

SMRT had dispatched free regular bus services for commuters travelling between Jurong East and Joo Koon stations.

It said in a tweet at 7.33pm that free regular bus services have ceased.
