Incidents

2002 train disruption

On October 21, 2002, the entire Bukit Panjang LRT service was shut down at 6.38 am after a disruption caused by a dislodged train wheel, which led to the power system being crippled between Bukit Panjang and Senja stations. Partial LRT services only resumed at 6.30 pm on October 24, 2002 and full services at 12 pm on October 26, 2002.

For the first time in history of the MRT and LRT, LRT services were free on October 27, 2002 as a way of compensating passengers of the inconvenience.[1]

2012 train disruption

The Bukit Panjang Light Rapid Transit (LRT) service was disrupted on the afternoon on Apr 22 2012 due to a train fault between Bukit Panjang and Senja stations. The disruption occurred at 4.45pm and affected Services A and C.

SMRT said that one train running Service A -- which starts and ends at Choa Chu Kang station via Senja station -- stalled before it entered Senja station.

There were 11 passengers on board then. Accompanied by staff, the passengers left the train and walked on a 1.5-metre-wide emergency walkway for about 150 metres to Senja station. Service A was restored two-and-a-half hours later. [2]
