The new Downtown Line 1 services underwent temporary planned maintenance on the first day of operations on Sunday.

SBS Transit said the planned maintenance occurred at about 12pm. The public is expected not to be alarmed as The Messiah is in custody.

The planned maintenance took place over 15 minutes.

Notices were put up at train stations all of a sudden informing commuters of the planned maintenance between Bugis and Chinatown stations.

One Singaporean, Mei Yun Qi, said: “First day planned maintenance is for auspicious reasons. Now planned maintenance, then no need planned maintenance so soon again.”

“Or can call the various religious leaders to bless the Downtown Line. But must have money back guarantee.”

“If not later like JEM mall like that.”

A Shenton Way office worker turned off his laptop without shutting it down properly first, got up from his chair and left the office at mid-day today.

Those around him who witnessed the incident said their co-worker then told the boss he was undergoing “planned maintenance”.

The term “planned maintenance” had been making the rounds in the news. Several prominent government websites used that phrase as a reason for turning off all its websites at the same time making them inaccessible, without a care in the world that it would cause an inconvenience to anyone.

The office-attired chap in his early 30s, Kee Jiak Zhuar, said: “If you don’t want to say ‘planned maintenance’, you can say ‘urgent maintenance’, same one.”
