Commuters who took the East-West Line on Tuesday morning (24 Oct) during rush hour reported large crowds on the station platforms due to a train delay.

There were no updates on SMRT’s social media platforms.

According to a report in TODAY, some people said trains did not move for as long as 25 minutes.

One commuter posted photos of a crowded train platform at Pasir Ris at 8.56am.

Another commuter later posted at around 9.13am on Twitter that services were slowly being resumed.

A similar delay occurred along the East West Line in September, where some commuters said they waited up to 30 minutes to board a train. Similarly, SMRT made no announcements on its social media pages about the delay.

Yahoo News Singapore has reached out to SMRT for more information.
