SINGAPORE: Train service along the East-West Line was delayed for more than two hours on Monday (Apr 9) morning due to a track fault, operator SMRT said. 

In its first tweet at about 7.50am, SMRT advised commuters to add 15 minutes to their usual travel time from Jurong East station to Joo Koon station "due to a track fault". 

By 8.40am, the delay had gone up to 25 minutes and extended to Clementi station, according to subsequent tweets. 

"We are working to recover service," the tweets read.

Service resumed as per normal at about 10.20am.
