Our reliable Transport Minister Mr Khaw Boon Wan announced that the overhaul of North-South East-West lines will only be completed by 2024.
For now, 2 out of 6 of the major renewal projects have been completed with other plans to upgrade the signalling system, power supply, track circuits and replace old trains. These projects will start in 2018 and hopefully be completed by 2024.
Khaw said he expects improved reliability by 2019 and did not forget to praise himself for improvements to the North-South line after its upgrade.
He said the full-day testing for North-South line will finish soon while testing for the East-West line will start in December: “There will be some delays for East-West Line commuters when testing starts, please bear with us”.
So many more years of overcrowding on trains and platforms, how? Cannot tahan also must tahan somemore?
