SMRT ACCIDENT: CEO DESMOND KUEK’S OFFICIAL STATEMENT

“It is with deep sadness that two SMRT staff, Nasrulhudin Bin Najumudin and Muhammad Asyraf Bin Ahmad Buhari, passed away today.

At around 11am on 22 March, a signalling condition monitoring device near Pasir Ris Station was triggered, and maintenance teams from the Permanent Way and Signal departments were sent to investigate. The teams moved in a single file along the walkway beside the track to the investigation location.

Unfortunately, during the process, the accident occurred. The safety of our people has always been the utmost priority and we are assisting the Police in their investigations into how the accident happened.

SMRT conveys our deepest condolences to the families of the deceased. We are in touch with the families and will be supporting them through this difficult time” – Desmond Kuek, SMRT President and Group CEO
