To be honest, I guess many already knows why our MRT keep breaking down. Our MRT was designed back in SG golden era of about 2 million people, now it is already three times that population and it will still keep raising.
I am very pissed with Grab especially their grabhitch services. There was a train service disruption yesterday and I was stranded for close to an hour an a half reaso being is that grab and uber have got high surge!
However, it is still not clear how Uber managed to fix all 1,220 cars in such a short time. LTA however, reassured motorists that they have been closely monitoring the recall and rectification process for all affected Honda Vezels in Singapore.
In order to help bus captains differentiate the various stopping points, the authority said it is looking into "increasing the prominence of the height limit signage and the visibility of the markings of the taxi lots". Bus captains are also constantly reminded by the bus operators to look out for the height limit signs, and have increased emphasis of these signs when training new bus captains.
Uber knowingly bought more than 1000 defective Honda Vezels and rented it to drivers without necessary repairs despite Honda's safety recall in 2016. It was only after several Vezel fires that they promised to take action and work with the LTA to solve the issue.
Most of the taxi drivers say that this is an "archaic" rule, and it counters the Government trumpet-blowing of urging citizens to embrace disruptive technology and the gig economy. Drivers should not be denied a means to earn extra income, as already the market for the drivers are very tight and they can barely make a living just by picking up passengers.
The LTA released a statement attributing the train delay this morning to intermittent power that was caused by a loose service maintenance door at Tiong Bahru MRT station. It assured that it has nothing to do with the new signalling system and said SMRT will conduct system-wide checks on its maintenance doors.
If Or Kim Peow Construction was already under LTA investigation for safety violations after a worker of their died, why was Or Kim Peow awarded the tender when there were other capable companies who bid for the job? Shouldn't there be punitive action taken while a company is being investigated? How can a company who flouts safety rules be seen as being rewarded with a huge contract when their safety record is poor?
