KHAW TARGETS RAIL RELIABILITY TO IMPROVE, BREAKDOWN ON THE HORIZON?

Dear A.S.S. Editor

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan is a really very ambitious man. In the debate in Parliament on the Transport Ministry budget, Mr Khaw said he has set a new target for train reliability for this year.

He wants trains to travel an average 300,000km before a major disruption occurs. This is an improvement of 72% over last year, where trains traveled 174,000km on average before encountering delays of more than five minutes.

Already very difficult to hit 200,000km before breakdown, he is targetting a 72% improvement? A very ambitious man indeed. Good for most of us if this target is achieved, but can it be done? But, knowing the way MRT trains are run these days, whenever Khaw open his mouth, some major disruption occur.

We have been warned.
