Commuter woes at Jurong East MRT station

Jurong East MRT station is getting more congested. I reach the station around 7.57am on workdays and can no longer board the first or second train. Track upgrading has also slowed down the journey.

I have resorted to taking the train to Chinese Garden MRT station, where I can board the eastbound train without the human traffic. Still, this takes more time than before.

As there are two North-South tracks at Jurong East, two or more trainloads of passengers may be transferring to an eastbound train. I wonder how this problem is being tackled.

I cannot predict the time I will reach my office, as this depends on whether I can squeeze into the train. Precious time is wasted. Where is the efficiency Singapore is trying to maintain?
