ICA UPDATE ON COLLAPSED CANOPY AT TUAS CHECKPOINT

A Malaysian motorcyclist and his pillion rider were injured and conveyed to Ng Teng Fong hospital. No drivers from the car zone were injured. The traffic situation is gradually resuming to normalcy and clearance of the fallen structure is ongoing. Motorists using the Second Link are urged to check for the latest traffic updates via LTA’s One Motoring website or MyTransport.SG portal before they embark on their journey. For safety reasons, arriving cars and motorcycles are diverted to other zones for clearance.

IS THIS WHAT WE WANT S’PORE TO BECOME?

To the PAP IBs, wherever you are, my question is this - is this the legacy you want to leave to your children, a legacy of dishonour and contempt for fellow human beings? Do you think this will be for the good of our society in the long run?

MR PNG’S POST WAS AIMED AT STIRRING HATE & ANGER, ALSO AT MY RESIDENTS & VOLUNTEERS

On the return journey, ICA facilitated the clearance for me and my security officers who were carrying their firearms, as well as the residents and volunteers who were with me on my bus. Our ICA officers do not have an easy responsibility. Cross border traffic at the causeway is one of the highest in the world. They have to maintain security while also trying to ensure a smooth flow of people entering and departing daily. I know because I too have been in the queues when on personal trips. I had the impression Mr Png waited a very long time.... But the purpose of his post, and that of his compatriots, was clear. It was not about the old folks. It was aimed at stirring hate and anger, not only to be directed at me, which I can understand politically, but also at my residents and volunteers (who organised as well as helped guide each bus), as well as our officers who secure our borders. It's unfortunate that he and his colleagues chose to politicise the issue.

WHY DID MIN TAN CHUAN JIN OPT TO EXERCISE HIS EXPEDITED CLEARANCE?

The question is knowing full well that he would receive expedited clearance while his residents on the rest of the nineteen buses would not, why did he opted to exercise his privilege as a Minister. General Tan Chuan Jin would understand the leadership ethos in the SAF of "first-in, last-out", "leave no man behind." The platoon is only as fast as the slowest guy. Kudos to those bus leaders from Kembangan-Chai Chee for their service to their residents. Before I left at 11.11pm (last bus from Hougang to make its way back), they were still waiting for their residents. Long night for them. The bus trip is successful not because there was a Minister in their midst but because his bus leaders served their residents well.
