History Edit

Train disruptions Edit

On 20 December 2012, train services on the North East Line was delayed due to a train fault. A statement from SBS Transit said there was no train service between Punggol and Little India due to a train fault. At about 5.18 pm, all train services resumed.[1][2]

A female commuter in her 40s had her leg trapped in the gap between the MRT train and the station platform on 24 April 2013 during the morning rush-hour. She had been standing by the doors while taking a crowded train on the North East Line from Farrer Park to HarbourFront when she was "pushed".[3]

Fire at Downtown MRT Line construction site Edit

No one was injured in a fire that broke out at a Downtown Line worksite along Race Course Road on the evening of 26 March 2014. The Land Transport Authority (LTA) told that a “small fire” had broken out at a “localised area” within the worksite of the Downtown Line Little India MRT station and had been put out by 10pm, after it first broke out about half an hour earlier. [4]
