IncidentsEdit

2000 accidentEdit

On 30 September 2000, a 70 year-old man was killed along the elevated tracks when he was hit by an MRT train near the Bedok station toward Kembangan MRT Station. Police were notified at 9:47 p.m., and the man was pronounced dead around 10:30 p.m. by Singapore Civil Defence Force officers. It took six police and SCDF officers to pull the body out from under the train. According to passengers interviewed, announcements over the public-address system said there was a technical problem with the tracks.

Train services between Eunos and Bedok stations, both east- and west-bound, were disrupted for about 1½ hours, up to 11:20 p.m. Hundreds of passengers were told to get off the trains and use the bus services which were added to ferry passengers between the Eunos and Tanah Merah stations.

2010 accidentEdit

Train services were disrupted at stations between Eunos and Tanah Merah in the eastbound direction for about an hour on the afternoon of 7 May 2010. This was due to a track incident at Bedok Station.

About 6,500 commuters were affected when a 54-year-old man was hit by a train at around 1.45pm. Westbound services were not affected. All train services resumed at about 3pm. Twenty-four free bus bridging services were deployed for the commuters affected by the disruption.[1][2]
