SINGAPORE: Train services on the Circle Line resumed on Thursday morning after a power trip failure occurred between Stadium and HarbourFront MRT stations at about 11.20pm on Wednesday.
Operator SMRT said engineers were deployed on site to remedy the situation so as to restore traction power to the rest of the network.
It said those on board were detrained to emergency walkways at Caldecott and Tai Seng MRT stations, for passenger safety.
Free bus services and bus bridging services were also activated within 20 minutes between Mountbatten and HarbourFront MRT stations.
These services were terminated at 12.30am on Thursday, after train services between Dhoby Ghaut and Stadium MRT stations, as well as between Marina Bay and Stadium MRT stations, ceased operations at the end of service hours.
SMRT said preliminary investigations revealed that the power trip was caused by a cable damaged by a contractor from the Land Transport Authority (LTA) during the power cable replacement exercise.
Power was resumed at 4.00am.
SMRT said it would continue to monitor the situation.
