Thread: E-W line SMRT breakdown @ about 1930h? (13 April Friday)

  1. #1

    Default E-W line SMRT breakdown @ about 1930h? (13 April Friday)

    Paya Lebar - s***loads of people on the platform and trains, stuck there and doors opened....wife could not take the E-W line at all and had to do a huge detour on the circle line and then NEL (1 extra hour). At Tg Pagar all the people had to take cabs/buses, as described by sister in law trying to squeeze into a bus.

    But no broadcast of this in the 10PM and 11PM news.

    Anybody got any info? Seems like it's a "small incident" and so under the carpet it goes.

    at least be thankful for the fault so they'll wake up off their sleeping asses and actually upgrade the tracks.

    Luckily I don't take public transport. I had given up on our world class public transport system years ago.

    Even the MRT in Thailand come much faster than ours.

    The Previous CEO must had consult the engineer regarding the stability of the tracks. I think when she saw the report, she immediately resign and Siam far far

    The delays are now not covered by the mainstream media.

    Social media comes into play.

    The problem here is that it affects locals and tourists alike.

    Need something to break down here to show empathy with N Korea's failure in their rocket. UK PM David Cameron was in town so this tube breakdown is off the news.

    There's a reason why they are installing 20K helicopter rotor blades in the train station.

    This is correct. All rolling stock needs maintenance. All moving parts break down.
    MRT lines to see weekend closures for upgrading works: Lui

    Why they never implemented this previously? Because they put someone in charge who was fixated on share price and afraid of downtime, who only knows the retailing angle but not the engineering aspects. Because some Singaporean commuters insist that the MRT system run without long breaks for proper maintenance.

    That's actually a cover up.

    They are actually planning to extend the classified network of underground railway tunnels leading deep down to top secret contingency facilities which are designed to ensure the survival and continuity of the incumbent government in an event of a nation or worldwide catastrophic event.

    Noticed that above both ends of all underground railway station is a pair of concealed blast doors weighing several hundred tons and rated for 1000 psi of overpressure meant to seal the entire network from the outside world. There are enough resources within to self-sustain the population for perhaps half a century or so.

    Singaporean commuters insist so because their bread dependes on it. Your employer can give you 2day off ah? The retailers can pay up rent ah over two days lost in a weekend? Singapore is running close to maximum capacity that we dnt have any buffer for anything else. If train maintenance day u think the roads can take it with extra commuters? Ten years ago no prob. Now, big problem.
