Why LTA and SMRT so special?

In a letter to the State Media yesterday, LTA and SMRT claimed that the signalling issues encountered during the replacement of the signalling system was common to cities that had “undertaken similar projects” as the “new system will take months to stabilise”.

We did a check and found that contrary to LTA and SMRT’s claim, this wasn’t the case in Copenhagen where a similar exercise is being undertaken. According to Denmark’s Ministry of Transport, Building & Housing, replacement, installation and trials are all being conducted at night to minimise any on convenience to commuters.

In its public announcement on its website, the Ministry committed that: “The complete replacement of the signalling system is not expected to cause delays. The replacement and installation will be carried out during the night.

Accordingly, the effects of the installation on the daily train operations will be minimised and not cause any major inconvenience for the passengers. A range of test runs of the new signalling system will be conducted during the night in order to ensure that the system is working correctly and spot any possible errors. In this way, the passengers will not experience any delays due to the replacement.”

So what makes the LTA and SMRT so special?

    There is nothing special about LTA and SMRT! Only special is Singaporeans are just daft, don’t think!

    What ever the authorities said is always true! When the authorities said other countries having the same problem but did not say which country, Singaporeans just take it as truth!

    When LHL said in Parliament, he did nothing wrong and acquitted himself, that the end of it! No abuse of power!

    Luckily we still have 30% who can still think. For the 70% please go to Hong Lim Park this evening 15/7/2017 at 4:00pm to meet this 30%.

    Cannot compare lah! Those in Euro America countries are trained to idenfity problems and raise questions. We on the other hand must keep quiet and wait for the bosses to tell us what to do and bosses wait until problems come and then start looking for the what, who, when, where, and how, and copying solutions from here and there in various countries. If we were to point out the mistake, we might be dismissed as making allegations against sb or management or spreading rumours. One’s loyalty would be doubted and become jobless.

  • No accountability:

    LTA and SMRT are indeed “special” like everything else in Singapore linked to PAP. They are “special” because there is no accountability despite very high pay.

    Singaporeans saw a very good example of this. PAP MPs did not hold LHL accountable in Parliament on July 3-4 for the allegation of abuse of power and dishonesty by his siblings. It allowed him to ignore evidence (“smoking gun”) and to declare himself acquitted of any wrongdoing. LHL used Parliament as a kanga**oo court.

    LWL and LHY are right there are no checks and balances in Singapore. That is why there is no accountability.

    Once the fake news law is passed, when only the govt can determine
    what is true and what is false, we will all live in Wonderland, like Alice
    in Lewis Carroll’s classic book.

    Unemployment will be low; foreign PMTs will stop stealing our jobs, in fact their numbers will fall even as they rise; public housing will be affordable; having a bed in a hospital corridor will be normal, as will waiting 1 year for an appointment to deal with urgent dental and medical probs; trains will hardly break down and hold-ups will be part of daily life; collecting cardboard in order to afford a meal will be the way to go; govt financial help will be easily available if needed; former army generals will be brilliant leaders even as they bring companies down; much higher prices of Everything will be standard; lifts not working will be a common occurrence, as will collapses at construction sites…. And of course, the govt will Always be doing the right thing, no matter how awful and odd the results. Everything it does will be correct and above board though normal procedure is not followed.

    Life in Wonderland will be wonderful, even as we wonder why there are so many contradictions between what the govt says and what we see and experience.

  • C'est la vie:

    *****
    The “so special” “quality” is not restricted to the LTA and SMRT.

    The whole Government and all of its annexes are equally “so special” at manufacturing utter and absolute hogwash that has no expiry date and can include referencing other countries experiencing similar “problems/issues” which is an out and out lie !!!

  • opposition dude:

    It isn’t that either of those organisations are special, it’s the fact that neither can get anything done right.

    When you see just how inept they are at resolving the ongoing MRT disrutions for god knows how many years already is when you know they do not have anyone capable. If you haven’t realised it already they are just doing the same shit whenever a disruption happens. They actually think that their usual “Journey times extendd by an extra 10 mins” are fooling people heh.

    They can do whatever they want and give all sorts of nonsensical excuses because they aren’t the ones affected. Should the PAP lose a good number of its turkeys in parliament after the next GE is when you see real work get done.

    End of the day we just have to put up with this for a few more years at the very least.

  • Woody wood packer Goh:

    There was a massive train breakdown on the Metro train line just two days ago.There was a computer glitch and all trains were stopped from moving.The defects were rectified in about 45 minutes and trains resumed their operations in stages.
    The next day the CEO came forward and apologised for the distruptions and said that The commuters will be compensated.
    This is the kind of accountability and transparency that Singapore ASSMRT NEEDS.
    All the commmuters are ENTITTLE TO GIVE THE TOP MANAGEMENT of ASSMRT a SLAPP for the daily breakdown of trains.
    Kow Boon Wah FOR GOODNESS SAKE HARA KIRI.We have enough of the hassles of Taking THE ASSMRT.

  • With Social Media...:

    You simply can’t bluff the people anymore!

    Using Main Stream Media to tell your preferred side of the story won’t work anymore!

    Be honest and be real and don’t belittle the intelligence of ordinary Singaporeans please!

    You are wrong, it still works as long as there is no change in the 70%.

    When there was alternative stories being told in Hong Lim Park on 15/7/2017, there was only a little more than 400 pax.

    The only proof is in GE2020. Let’s see.
