MRT DELAYS THING OF THE PAST? MRT LINES GETS NEW SIGNALLING SYSTEM AND SLEEPER REPLACEMENT

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan just officiated on the completion of the replacement of the MRT sleeper replacement programme. This is for the East West Line and the North South Line. The project, which involved replacing timber track sleepers with hardier, concrete ones, started in August 2013 and was completed in December last year.

Minister must be happy, his project finally completed. The LTA also took the opportunity to announce that they will implement a new signalling system on the North-South Line progressively from March this year. This will ensure trains run at faster intervals. Could this be the solutions to packed MRT trains during peak hours? Only time will tell.

So, will we see any more teething problems on our old and creaking MRT lines? If not wrong, the newer MRT lines which are not supposed to be creaking also have many many problems. Delay due to MRT is almost a normal thing now. So Mr Minister sir, any other suggestions on how to solve these problems?
