2008 Train Disruptions

On 21 January 2008, a maintenance works train which was carrying out works between Tampines and Simei (westbound) broke down, causing a disruption from 5.28am to 12.45pm on both direction from Pasir Ris and Tanah Merah, affecting 57,000 commuters.[1] SMRT was fined $387,176 on 10 March 2008 after the LTA's investigations concluded that the disruption was due to SMRT's working party not complying with operating procedures. This was specifically on securing the parked portion of the maintenance train, which comprised a locomotive and a wagon. The fine was the largest ever for a rail related incident in Singapore. According to operating procedures, during maintenance works, the portion comprising a locomotive and a Rail Grinding Vehicle will proceed with its works, while the portion of the maintenance train is detached and parked at a distance from the working zone. However, investigations from LTA and SMRT showed that SMRT did not apply the locomotive's parking brake. There was also no wheel chock placed to prevent movement along the gradient of the track. If SMRT had followed operating procedures, a roll-back would have been prevented.[2]

On 20 March 2008, SMRT announced that it had decided to appeal to the LTA against the fine. In a letter, SMRT said it had provided free shuttle bus services to help affected commuters. SMRT also mobilised more than 300 staff for on-site recovery, crowd management, dissemination of information and preparation for resumption of service.[3]

On 3 April 2008, LTA turned down SMRT's appeal for a lower fine and ordered SMRT to pay the fine in full within two weeks.[4]

The Big Round & The Tall Long by Studio Juju is an artwork that allows commuters to experience the relationship between oneself and the hyperbolic shapes, and oneself to the vastness of the station.
