Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan made another amusing comment about the very problematic Bukit Panjang LRT.
He agreed the design is flawed and explained that it was built as an “afterthought” due to political pressure. He said no LRT is designed in such a “masochistic manner, where you force yourself up and down, twist and turn”. He also said he did not enjoy riding on the LRT as it caused him to be dizzy.
Just last year alone, Bukit Panjang LRT experienced 8 major delays.
However, instead of doing away with it completely, our beloved Transport Minister insists on upgrading it and improving its reliability.
For a start, maybe he should improve his own reliability first? How come the LRT will make him dizzy? Is it because he’s not used to public transport?
