DUPLICATE BUS SERVICES IN ORCHARD ADDS TO JAM. LTA MUST ACT NOW!

I am sick and tired of the traffic jams during morning peak hours along Orchard and Shenton Way area, the reason being is that there are just too many buses there! They are occupying the whole left lanes and most of the high demand bus services just drop passengers off at the second lane! LTA should look into our bus routes thoroughly and withdraw duplicating bus services and also stop spamming or deploying too many buses on a particular route.

UNFAIR TO ALLOW CHEAPER JB BIKES TO BE USED AS DELIVERY VEHICLES?

How to compete if LTA allow JB bike which only cost less than our COE to operate here. What if an accident happens and 3rd party insurance claim state for JB bike does not cover for commercial usage. Who should we claim from? Bottom line is how LTA set rules for our people to be competitive if COE is so high. Bosses are looking only at their profits. No bosses will care how it is done. Only LTA can regulate this.

EXPECT MORE CAR BREAKDOWNS IN RAINY WEATHER. SGREANS TOO RICH TO MAINTAIN CAR

With the NEA indicating that the there will be no let up in the heavy rain as we head into the end of January, there will be more instances of flash flood occurring in places you would not normally associate with flooding. And nowadays, with drivers behaving as if they are all kings and queens of the road, expect more impatient drivers on the roads, especially with jams expected on major roads and expressways due to the inclement weather. Nowadays, you hear more instances of car breakdowns on roads everywhere. Is it because the cars nowadays are not as hardy as they were before, or road users simply became too lazy to do proper maintenance of their cars?

MRT CAN MOVE AT FASTER SPEED LIKE LAST TIME. MORE BREAKDOWNS?

LTA has just announced that the speed limit for the MRT trains on the East West line will be increased back to 80kmh, back to the normal speed before the works for the sleeper replacement project commenced. Now that the works are over, the MRT trains can move back up to a faster speed. Maybe this will help finally to ease the congestion on the trains every morning, as people rush off to work. But, with the spate of latest breakdowns that has tarnished the MRT image for the past five years, hopefully the higher speeds does not mean more breakdowns coming our way.

MRT DELAYS THING OF THE PAST? MRT LINES GETS NEW SIGNALLING SYSTEM AND SLEEPER REPLACEMENT

Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan just officiated on the completion of the replacement of the MRT sleeper replacement programme. This is for the East West Line and the North South Line. The project, which involved replacing timber track sleepers with hardier, concrete ones, started in August 2013 and was completed in December last year. Minister must be happy, his project finally completed. The LTA also took the opportunity to announce that they will implement a new signalling system on the North-South Line progressively from March this year. This will ensure trains run at faster intervals. Could this be the solutions to packed MRT trains during peak hours? So, will we see any more teething problems on our old and creaking MRT lines? If not wrong, the newer MRT lines which are not supposed to be creaking also have many many problems. Delay due to MRT is almost a normal thing now.
