Update: MRT tweeted just before 9am that train service from Yew Tee to Jurong East is running normally.
The North South Line of the MRT has been hit by another delay. According to a tweet from SMRT, commuters were advised to add 15 minutes of train travel time from Yew Tee to Jurong East stations.
Thus, SMRT advised commuters travelling towards the Central Business District to take the train service “through Woodlands towards Marina South Pier”.
