[LTA – SBS Transit Joint Statement]
Train services on the Downtown Line (DTL) were affected by a signalling system fault at Bayfront station at 6.01am this morning (1 Mar 2018). As a result, trains approaching Bayfront station in both directions had to be driven manually and at a lower speed.
By 7.30am, the signalling fault was isolated to the stretch from Promenade to Bayfront stations in the direction of Expo. However, due to train bunching, there were additional journey times of 15 minutes to half an hour from Bukit Panjang station.
Currently, trains are still travelling at lower speeds from Promenade to Bayfront stations, with additional travel times of up to 15 minutes over that stretch. Free boarding of regular bus
services is available at designated bus stops between Bugis and Chinatown stations.
The signalling system supplier Siemens is working closely with our engineering teams to restore normalcy at the affected stretch as soon as possible.
We are sorry for the inconvenience caused to commuters
