This morning at about 8.18am, a train heading in the direction of Tuas Link Station stopped at Joo Koon Station to detrain passengers due to an anomaly in the train signalling system. At 8.19am, a second train stopped 10.7 metres behind the first stationary train. This is in accordance with the safety protocol of the signalling system protection that ensures safe stopping distance between two trains. At 8.20am, after detrainment, the first train’s doors closed and before this train could move off, the second train, activated by the signalling system, moved towards the first train and hit it. Thales, LTA and SMRT are investigating the incident. For more information, please refer to the attached joint statement.
