SMRT a strong operator of trains: Transport “Expert”. SMRT has won the tender to build the LRT in Bandung City, according to a Facebook post by Bandung Mayor Ridhwan Kamil. According to “experts” that PAP-controlled Today spoke to, SMRT has a track record and can impart its knowledge to the City of Bandung.
Transport analyst Park Byung Joon, who lectures at SIM said:
“Despite some recent operational hiccups suffered by SMRT, it is still a very strong operator of trains. As an operator of trains, it can bring in its knowledge on how to oversee the construction project and what kind of considerations you have to have for safety concerns. This kind of knowledge can be very useful for the consortium.”
