LTA outsourced projects to company owned by advisors

Click to enlarge

2 days ago Strait Times reported that LTA appointing Aedes to conduct studies and site-investigation for LTA new headquarters. However, the budget approved was a very large $56.8 million.

From the website, it says that Tony Ang, Global Board Director of Aedas and co-founder of Aedas’ Singapore office also happens to be the Charmain of a Land Transport Authority (LTA) sub-committee. Isn’t this a conflict of interest? I was also unable to find any tender awarded to Aedas on LTA tender website.

$56.8million is a large sum of money that can be used to help many social causes for Singaporeans, or reinvested to better use. We demand more accountability and transparency with the use of our money.

  • Amos humiliated L*L and PAP:

    Not suprised. The lack of openness and transparency is the “hallmark” of the (illegitimate and self-serving) PAP. If WP ever did this PAP would be shouting their guts out. But when PAP does it no nobody says anything.

    Amos’s victory in US Court makes it clear that the Singapore system is “rigged” in favour of PAP and its stooges.

    We can demand, but we know there’ll never be transparency and accountability with this government. We have n incompetent PM who is sitting in that position most probably because his father is LKY. Looking at history leadership and lack of foresight track record, it’s hard to believe otherwise.

    when u read something like this, it is no wonder pap govt is outsourcing their work . This is not exclusive to LTA but to other govt bodies as well and it has been going on since the last decade. Recall the outsourcing to jus name MBS , to study the site to build the bin centre looking structure near City Hall, to hire employees on contract for the govt/stat bds etc

    Any media inquiries on this? Or are they so timid?

    Media inquiries to FAS can only?

    LTA is a cash cow for regime and is untouchable.

    How about Accountant General office or are they so scared of one man?

    This is crystal clear that the regime had not only engage in ‘conflict of interest’, it may also involve corruptive handling of contracts, as had occurred in the AMK TC. The CPIB, under the control of PM, is not performing their duties accordingly. It is a one sided justice, and only a change of governing can put the nation to a state of justice for all.

    LTA has been making and continue to make $billions per annum from the public esp from motorists by implementing over the years various schemes of things such as monie$$$$ $qeezing stuff like COE, ERP, etc, Their Noble justification for COE crap stuff that capped at 10 years validity, are to prevent old vehicles from breaking on the road, causing road congestion. What happen now? Upon PAYING for an EXTENTION of another 5 or 10 years validity, the owner is allowed to drive the NOW MORE THAN 10 year old car on the road again! The Noble justification of GETTING rid of old cars off the road no LOONGER apply! HoLee shit$, this is another one of scheme of things of ex-Minister MarBok Tan who was the Minister of Transport. If this short arse is sincere and has the motorist public at heart, he should make the validity of the COE at least 15 years! BTW, He also wanted to build a fiacking LTA HQ at North Borna Vista costing almost half a $biilion at that time BUT his fiacking idea was shelved due to huge uproar from the citizen! Now LTA is at it again….too much revenue$$$$$ in their coffer, no where to throw or spend!

    It is only conflict of interest when it happens in Opposition Wards!

    To the PAP this is efficiency.

    Also it is “taking money from residents and give to friend” when this is done by Opposition.

    Remember if you want to have fame, power and wealth, join the PAP. You will have the protection by the police too.

    This is acceptable by 70%.

    LEEgally corrupt and cronism is the name of the game here.
    The AIM saga is a fine example of how these people grease their own palms.
    Dig deeper and you will see how these connected are helping thenselves to all our tax dollars through their dubious contracts.

  • Uncle Lim:

    SG is ranked high for cronyism so this is hardly surprising. Just look at the AIM scandal.

    LTA is spending millions on a satellite system to replace ERP gantries. With this system, LTA can capture every illegal parking in SG as well.

    But don’t think LTA is doing this for your benefit.

    Regime has an ulterior motive: to spy on Sporeans. Maybe on Malaysia too?

    This is why all matters relating to Money, are not revealed to public, and illogical excuses like, ‘Takes many donkey years and thousands of man hours to calculate,’ Secret’ and cannot be reveal to public, are told to public to stop questioning or face Ah Long’s court of injustice. With such manner of answers, it is positive that there are corruptive elements in the regime. Hope, someday, some genius oppo can open this can of worms.

    You are right. Well said.

    Saying Older cars more frequently breaking down on roads was just an excuse. Actually I’ve seen quite a number of under 10 years old cars breaking down.

    The Clown said in 2015 the increase in petrol duty was to discourage people from driving around unnecessarily.
    Ask around your friends and see how many go on joy rides in congested SG.

    The Clown is dangerously out of touch.

    As for LTA, it’s practically printing money and more obsessed with making money than providing a world class transport which was yet another one of PAP fake promises.
