Sit-in protest to be held for frequent train breakdowns and latest flooding incident at NSL

Mr Gilbert Goh, the founder of Transitioning.org is organizing another sit-in protest at Hong Lim Park on 4 November (Saturday), in light of the recent major service disruption in the train system at North South Line on 7 October (Saturday) and breakdown at Downtown Line on last Sunday.

According to Gilbert, the planned two-hour sit-in-protest seeks to allow Singaporeans to show their displeasure at the frequent train break down and the latest mishap which was badly managed by the leadership of the transport company.

“Singaporeans have suffer immensely and silently from their train failures for many years and its time we step up our protest so we wont be seen as taking it lightly” Gilbert reportedly said.

In a press conference by LTA and SMRT on Monday (15th Oct), it was revealed that the flooding of the MRT tunnel which caused a twenty-hours termination of service for six stations was caused by poor maintenance of the anti-flooding system. A few days later, the Vice-President of Maintenance at SMRT was replaced to placate angry commuters.

Mr Desmond Kuek, Chief Executive Officer of SMRT said at the press conference that deep-seated cultural issues remain within the company that need more time to root out, despite some progress being made.

“Indeed, many of our major disruptions in the past have been attributed in some part, or all, to human error or failure,” Mr Kuek said. ” We regret that this is so.”

Khaw Boon Wan, who is the minister in charge of LTA said at the same press conference that if the anti-flooding system was well-maintained, the reservoir to hold the excessive rainwater should be empty before it starts to flow.

There were plans to replace the water pumps on 29 September, but it was delayed, said Mr Khaw.

Mr Khaw then added “But I suppose that is life.”

Below is the write up by Gilbert Goh at the Facebook event page for the planned sit-in-protest

Singaporeans have regularly experienced frequent train break-downs for the past few years but the major one which happened almost two weeks ago is probably the last straw that broke our camel’s back.

Part of the tunnel at Bishan was flooded resulting in a prolonged 20-hour shut-down – it’s the longest break-down in history since MRT started operating almost 3 decades ago.

Years of maintenance negligence has resulted in a faulty train line which regularly breaks down and there are even emergency PSLE shelters for those who are taking their exam in the event of another peak-hour break-down!

Some have even joke that predicting a train break-down carries very little odds nowadays and to cap off a very tough week for the transport ministry, the official opening of another Downtown new line last weekend has met with yet another train fault! The transport minister now blames bad luck for the mishap on top of maintenance, track fault, media and resignalling which he has tried to pin the blame on throughout his horrendous reign as transport minister.

The latest saga also involves the failure of the leadership team to take rightful responsibility and right now unfortunately the minister decides to pin blame on the maintenance team resulting in a year-end bonus reduction. This is all right if the entire team including the leadership shares the penalty of the major mishap but most Singaporeans are aghast to know that fingers are again pointed at a small section of the transport work force.

If this happens in many other countries, the minister plus his entire leadership team will probably have resigned long ago or automatically opted for a pay cut to atone for their mistakes.

By resorting to only blaming a small section of the team for the mistake, it not only creates low morale within the entire team but also gives people the impression that its alright not to own up to your mistake if you are belonging to the top brass – the low-level staff will take the rap anyway.

The leadership needs to own up to their mistakes so that no one is beyond reproach especially the ones who are at the very top – their behaviour and ability to face up to mishaps must be the explemary hallmark of a good leader. By stepping down, the minister or CEO in fact earns the respect of those they led and they can leave the force in dignity actually instead of having to drag their feet around in a sinking ship in shame.

This second silent sit-in protest will have no speeches, no stage and no sound system – its meant for those who want to turn up to show their displeasure at the long-lasting disastrous transport system and also how the leadership handles a major mishap.

If you are affected in one way or another by our inept train system while going to work or returning home during the peak hour, do show up and make your stand this coming Saturday at Hong Lim Park at 430pm. By turning up, you are directly telling the authorities that you are unhappy with the transport system here and want to see concrete improvement.

We are tired of “We are sorry” meaningless apology, we want the transport ministry to come up with a definitive plan to improve train operations. Singaporeans are a understanding lot and we are not asking for a quick positive outcome but the faults must gradually be reduced and the management must emphatically inform the public about its over-haul plan so that they will be held responsible.

The train faults have being going on for far too long despite all the reasoning and blame and its time for the leadership to assure the public that they are in control of the situation or else…

 

This is the second time that a silent sit-in-protest is organised at Hong Lim Park, the first being the protest against the Elected Presidency.

  • Ministers will not take a hit:

    Is anyone able to come up in dollar terms the total number of person-hours in economic activity lost as a result of all those breakdowns?

    Will the multimillion dollar bonuses of our Ministers take a hit too?

    For workers who suffered unpaid lost hours, who is going to pay for them?

    Or those students whose future under the SG exam-crazed worth measurement system suffered irreversibly under the stress of being late for the exams?

  • KBW- easy millions$$$$$:

    Obama must be very puzzled on why KBW and several other SG ministers are paid millions several times more than him and comparing their responsibilities with his is like a drop of water in the ocean! This is SG what to do! The PAP has the majority in parliament so if they wanted to pay themselves millions the highest in the world, can citizens do anything? Just too bad we have a toothless opposition in parliament , not making any noise in parliament while citizens suffer in silence!
    Each time there is train disruption , KBW will deflect away blame to others, spin some stories or chides others to side track the issue! Heis not involved in frontline duties, so disruptions have nothing to do with him, it is SMRT or SBS transit to deal with the problem! SDp has asked KBW to step down neitizens have asked him to commit Harakiri as he had recommended it for WP Mps but will he? Just fat hope! PM Lee has not said anything although persistent train breakdowns have affected businesses and workers productivity, students late for exams, people missing important appointments and most importantly SG’s reputation as an efficient no nonsense little red dot has been damaged. How to be a smart nation how to be a car lite nation, how to have first class transportation when trains breakdown so often. Next year KBW will announce that train services have improved 4 times since he took over from LTY!

    It says good things abt the transport system contrary to this article.

    I wonder what fubding is used if any, to pay these youtubers ?

    Many local youtube chabnels with perceivably huge followings also are sponsored heavily and they avoid politics at all cost.

    They ignore reality.

    Greed made them mercenaries.

    Also a channel by a chinaman working in sg trying to lure chinamen to migrate here. He creates a video basically every week to lure chinaman to sg. Also omitting all bad news about sg in terms of politics.

    Their prostitutioning is too obvious.

    So, there is propaganda going on for years using social media and the toads are still enjoying thw warm bath.

    and of course, if you have handed shit / mess (beyond repairs) to another person. it may well be a self fulfilling prophecy that no one can rectify the shit / mess. not all shit (e.g cancerous as the culture of shitty behaviors / approaches may be (is) pervasive within a group) can be rectified – unless it is an expensive “overhaul” which again who is going to pay the price more (the white idiots or the paying public who has entrusted the white idiots with the job ?).

    you sack someone on the premise of penalizing him (carrot and stick) for work shoddily done and that the replacement can do better. and if the replacement is still the same or worst like previous, you change again and again and again.

  • To Gilbert:

    I just find it odd that you have to organize a sit in at Hong Lim Park. If attendance is like most other similar events in Hong Lim Park, it is just another sit in, PAP is not going to do anything. If it is going to have any adverse impact on PAP, the police are going to stop you or prosecute or even persecute.
    If the 70% are going to let Singapore rot, so be it. They will feel the pain more than you.
    In other countries, we see transport workers have a sit in or strike after the CEO of the major train and bus operator insulted their co-workers when the CEO, the political leader and cronies are getting away exonerated, drawing millions of dollars of salary.
    It is a matter of time Kuek, Khaw will be made Chairman or director of some GLC or Temasek majority owned company. They will be still filthy rich like Mah Bow Tan, who makes millions of dollars in his investments in PAP cronies companies, and properties. They make policies like the housing poicies, and can influence their proteges and fellow PAP Ministers in the government policies, to benefit themselves and cronies. CityDev is going big on enbloc, Capitaland is holding back sales waiting for price to shoot up before selling.
    They have insider information that ordinary Singaporeans do not have.
    Anyway, I respect your perseverance and contributions in your attempt to make Singapore a better and more equitable place for true blue Singaporeans.

    Right. But if you notice, it’s not “talented” Malay Malaysians who are coming here. Only the Chinese and maybe a sprinkling of Indians.

    Basically, all the same lah – whether non-Malay Singaporeans or non-Malay Malaysians. Same same.

    But with one BIG difference, many Malaysians don’t give up their Malaysian citizenships. Why should they, they can have the best of both worlds. Make a small pile here and go back to buy a nice house and Sing$ versus Ringgits, do your math.

    Being Singaporeans does not have any privileges at all. Only burdens – screwed up jobs, stuck CPF and choh peng (sacrifice two years plus Reservist – to serve all these foreigners). And you wonder why stupid Singaporeans continue to vote the PAP.

Well plps well done and highly recomemded PLP order of Excellence so as to pin on before ashened in the nailed box.

    So life goes on. PLPs are plps. Pariahs r pariahs. Premier grade plps r still collecting their millions. KPKB still kpkb. Gorilla still showing her fingers while structing on holidaying with the ah quah nfi.

    So what. No Big Deal,. Wait for your GEtit bits and wala millions are racking in again. Daft Doves. Shits!

    I heard from a reliable source that Universal in Sg is closing down end of year,
    Because everyone is switching to MRT rides. It has all the elements of anxiety, shock and thrill including floods and its so much CHEAPER.

    Retrenchments of the 70% makes me feel warm and fuzzy deep in my anus.
    Wish they Rot in Hell.

    They deserve it!
    Wrong, they deserve WORSE!

    How come no report on the sit-in?
    The turnout highlighted Sporeans laziness and
    belief that they cannot change anything?

    That attitude gets you nowhere. If thousands
    turn up at these things, holding placards
    slamming SMRT, govt, there could be change.
    If the ST or MOT was flooded with furious
    letters, we might see some reaction. Just
    griping online results in only same same.

    Not only that, the people are not able to retire and so money always not enough. Most likely , most of them ARE NOT EVEN AWARE of the protest.

    Even if they know, they are not really keen.

    Their priority is earn money and sleep.

    WP will never get another GRC.

  • We Must OBEY:

    CEO SMRT, Thank God!:
    How lucky Singaporeans are, that we did not have you in command of the SAF if we had gone to war during your tenure!

    ‘Deep rooted issue’ is and was never an issue until you joined SMRT and it have been 5 bad and long years, not 5 days, not 5 weeks, not 5 months!

    Be an Officer and a Gentleman, move on please, let a better guy do the job!

    But his salary is so high its higher than the world’s highest paid politician in the whole universe and some say the world!

    There is no Demand for protest against SMRT nor to have the thing resign.
    This is singapore and we are singaporeans.

    Prof of sgrean minds:
    Out of 5million population, even if 5000 turn up, its only 0.1%.

    If my reading of the singaporean minds is accurate,
    This protest will bring far less than the protest against election without any election.

    I have researched the mysterious singaporean minds for two decades and am confident my reading is accurate.

    I even prophecised the cpf issues will hit them jialat jialat.

    Wait and see my prophecies come true.

    Their mindset is SMLJ also BOH BIAN.

    Absolutely subscribed to Absolute authoritatianism.

    There is No Hope.

    Again and again, your PROPHECIES have come true !

    The people do not demand for protests.

    What does demand mean?

    A business is selling a product.
    But only 1000 singaporeans bought it despite advertisements. This 1000 means there is no demand.

    When demand is extremely little vis-a-vis population, it means theee is no demand.

    I graduated early 1970s while Sporean grads do their Ns Malaysian trash fill up all the vacancies& when our male
    Sporean grads finish Ns all the plum jobs in Pte n. Civil service filled with trash;end game spore male grads lost two Yrs opportunity experience and promotion prospects and THATS a lot in Pte sector;many of them married Sporean girls also ; Sporean males get screwed all way frt and back
    I say I have never voted for them since then unlike the stupid 70 pct;I wait and hope the 70 pct and their kids suffer and lose jobs to foreign trash : donot cry or complain you screwed Yrs elves ; go to hdb 20 floor and jump down you totally deserve it
