Train Vandalism

On 18 May 2010, a Kawasaki Heavy Industries C151 train carriage was deliberately vandalised in the depot. Elaborate graffiti was drawn on the lower half of the carriage.[1]

A Swiss national, Oliver Fricker was charged with three charges of trespassing into the depot on the early hours of 17 May and vandalising the train by spraying paint and damaging public property by cutting a wired fence into property belonging to the Land Transport Authority. Another British national has also been named as being involved in the case. However, his whereabouts are unknown.[2]

SMRT apologised for security lapse on 8 June 2010 and reviewed the security measures in all depots together with the authorities. All personnel of the security companies, employed by SMRT, have been instructed to step up vigilance. The number of security personnel and patrols at each depot has been increased.[3]

SMRT was fined S$50,000 for this incident.[4]

Reception Tracks

On the East West Line, it has 2 reception tracks that lead to Tanah Merah station.
