Train service on NEL suspended until further notice: SBS Transit:

In its fourth update on the NEL breakdown since 5am, it said after fixing the original problem of snapped power cables, its engineers detected a new problem during final checks. "Our engineers have gotten the two connecting cables back up and had started testing the system for service resumption. As they were doing their final checks, they found a new problem relating to electricity insulation. This problem had not been present before and we are now working to get it resolved," it said.
