Dear A.S.S. Editor
SMRT already prepping commuters for expected delays on the MRT North South Line (NSL) starting from next week. This comes as the SMRT are planning to start weekday signal tests from next week onward.
Commuters are told to expect that there may be some teething problem next week, as the signal tests are started. Among expected glitches, commuters are expected to be ready for train and platform doors not opening or closing promptly, trains held at stations slightly longer than usual or trains stopping momentarily between stations. This happens as the new system settles in to full load operations. SMRT also said that to minimise even worse commuter inconvenience, they purposely scheduled the signal testings during the June school holidays.
So the SMRT have already put in early excuses for delays to happen next week. Very thoughtful of them.
