NETIZEN PETITIONS LTA TO STOP BUYING NEW MRT TRAINS FROM CRRC SIFANG CHINA

All of this is all fine and dandy, until you realise that "Kawasaki Heavy Industries Ltd., CRRC Qingdao Sifang Co. Ltd., Kawasaki Heavy Industries (Singapore) Pte Ltd. and Singapore CRRC Sifang Heavy Vehicles Service Pte. Ltd. Consortium" is bidding for the CR151 contract. You may be asking "What's wrong with this?". Well, in Singapore, CSR Sifang/CRRC Sifang trains have been known to cause many issues. Not only that, the CRRC Sifang China made trains also have a whole other host of problems, such as battery boxes busting, and faulty STARiS displays (the blinking LED line maps you see), among others. SMRT has even suspected that they were the cause of the major train disruptions in 2011.
