4 DELAYS

Yesterday

In the morning: The disruption on the Circle Line started with a signal fault, which operator SMRT tweeted about at 7.37am. Later, services between Marymount and Botanic Gardens MRT stations were disrupted.

The disruptions then extended to Serangoon and Botanic Gardens MRT stations.

At 10.27am, SMRT tweeted that normal train service had resumed.

A joint statement by the Land Transport Authority (LTA) and SMRT said preliminary investigations found that the cause of the disruptions was interfering signals that disrupted the Circle Line's own signalling-related communications.

The Circle Line had similar signal faults in early September this year, which resulted in slower trains and longer waiting times.
