    Default The Bunagkok white elephant station issue

    The Buangkok station has been capturing public attention for the authority stand of not opening it. Wonder what has been happening?

    Anyone knows what has gone through since the cardboard cutouts of the white elephant was put up in 2005?

    Has it got to do with profitability again which is more important than care and concern for the people living there?

    Did you even bother to check for any news updates before trying to post this issue? Or eventry taking the NE Line MRT lately? Buangkok has been open for a very long time already.

    There was a full page review in ST dated 26th Sept 2008 regarding the issue and probe
    into the happenings before it was opened.

    If not for the campaign by grassroots leaders in the area to get it opened....h'mm
    don't know what to say.

    However it seems that the station was opened after a two year fight with
    more than a hundred volunteers canvassing for petition signatures.

    Correct me if I am wrong.

    Yup. The station has opened with a few other amenties around the station like 24hrs Kopitiam and NTUC above it. Most of the HDB around the station has also completed and residents are moving in.

    Correct, so why even start the thread as if you had no idea what's going on?
