Frustrated commuters: Circle Line prolong rather than shorten journey:

Netizens say that Circle Line trains are staying far too long at each station and causing unnecessary delays for passengers. A netizen highlighted that the Circle Line actually prolongs his journey to work rather than shorten it. The netizen's journey was stretched from about 38 minutes to one hour when he tried going to work from Macpherson station to Labrador Park station. One common complaint is that the trains stop for between one to four minutes at each station, long after passengers have boarded and alighted from the train. This "empty" delay leaves many passengers frustrated while waiting for the train to move.
