Commuters heading towards Marina South Pier on the North-South Line were delayed on Friday morning (Mar. 19), due to a platform screen door fault.

Train operator SMRT announced the delay on Twitter at 8.28am, telling commuters to add 10 minutes of travel time from Ang Mo Kio to Braddell.

However, many responded to the tweet itself, claiming that the delays were far longer than 10 minutes.

In addition, others complained that the train was not only moving slowly, but also moving intermittently and braking often, causing discomfort to some commuters.

In a later tweet at 9.53am, SMRT reduced the additional travel time from Ang Mo Kio to Braddell to five minutes.
