A total of 65 passengers had to be evacuated from Bukit Panjang Light Rapid Transit (LRT) trains on Tuesday (Mar 28) following a breakdown in train services at about 8.10pm.
SMRT said that the breakdown happened due to a “propulsion fault”. Another LRT train was deployed to rescue the stalled train back to the depot for further checks, it added.
During this time, train services on the loop running between Petir and Senja stations were still available. Bus bridging and free regular bus services were activated between Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang LRT stations, SMRT said.
Service resumed at 9.27pm.
