Dear A.S.S. Editor

Finally! The Tai Seng MRT Station will finally have its own underpass linking the station to the other part of the road. The underground station, which is not built by the LTA but by private company Mapletree, is scheduled to be ready in the second half of the year.

Currently, the Tai Seng Station is the only station on that particular stretch of the Circle Line that does not have an underground link to the other side of the road. Commuters are forced to cross at a signalised junction or climb an overhead pedestrian bridge if they want to get to the other side.

Not sure why the LTA did not factor this underground link into their plans when the station was designed. Is it because they were thinking about making money via the project to be outsourced to a private developer? Than if financial gain is the main aim, and not accessibility for commuters, than this is a sad day indeed.
