Incidents

On the evening of 25 December 2007, some technical difficulties were experienced along the North East Line caused delays for train services. A member of the public who was affected by the delay said she waited for at least 20 minutes for the train at the station.[1]

Trains along the North East Line were delayed from about 3.15 pm to 3.36 pm on 6 April 2012 due to a signalling fault, affecting services between Chinatown and HarbourFront stations. One train had to be turned round to the northbound direction at Farrer Park MRT Station to "regulate service".[2]
