A massive train service disruption occurred on the North-South Line around lunchtime on Saturday.

A “traction power loss between Kranji and Yew Tee” at 12:30pm disrupted train service from Woodlands to Choa Chu Kang stations, according to tweets from SMRT.

Normal service linking these six stations reportedly resumed at about 2:10pm.

During the break down, SMRT had activated free shuttle bus services between Woodlands and Yew Tee stations.
