SMRT should render all necessary support to affected passengers of Joo Koon collision incident

The Workers’ Party is disturbed to learn about the MRT train collision this morning which saw 23 commuters and two SMRT staff injured, including at least two with major injuries. Our thoughts and prayers are with the injured.

We call on SMRT to render all necessary support to them, and ensure that the company covers all their medical expenses resulting from this incident, including any long-term treatment costs.

The collision occurred when a moving train hit a stationary train at Joo Koon station. The collision suggests a failure of the systems that ought to prevent such an event, which presumably should have several levels of checks.

While facts are still emerging, we ask that the LTA will work with the SMRT to undertake an exhaustive root cause analysis and make the necessary system improvements to minimise the risk of such an accident recurring.

Millions of Singaporeans depend on the MRT for their daily commute. They should not have to worry about their safety when they travel to and from home, work, or school.

    Yup, spoken like the true B team as they are. Your response to anything errant by your masters are way overdue and delayed, just like the trains.

  • WP got talk like no talk:

    WP is speaking like a a ‘gu niang’. Why no give Khaw any pressure like SDP & Team Lim did? Obviously WP is too scared to offend the big bulLEE?

    When AHPETC got into trouble, PAP especially Khaw had asked for WP’s blood. Now when our trains are giving massive problems, all WP asked are for them to render support to the injured victims and for LTA to work with SMRT?! Aren’t these asking the obvious? It’s of course something that they’ve to do under such circumstances. Why need WP to bring it up?

    Please WP! You’re up against a bunch of gangsters. Being soft pussies will do your party nor the people (who voted for you) no good. You don’t have to ask for Khaw to hara kiri, just ask him to f**k off!

    There have been so many chances for WP to attack your opposition when there’re various screw up by the millionaire ministers including PM’s family saga, but each time the people expect WP to attack, the hammer failed to hit the nail on its head and disappointed us.

    This is just another disappointing statement by WP.

    Yes, SMRT should cover their medical costs. It is sad to see that no senior management from SMRT go and visit them on the first day. Thought customer welfare should be the priority and not the collided train. Saw picture of CEO DK at the station but not at the hospital. Something is seriously wrong with the culture.

    Aren’t you a yet unhatched chick? Or worse a hatched chick from a new egg yoke of questionable quality.

    BECAUSE.. What is so wrong of WP waiting for more and confirmed information before seeking clarifications according to sensible protocol. You think you are very smart is it not. So you show off your total ignorance and stupidity. Worse is that 4 like you supported you the daft!

    TRE is clearly being sabotaged by its linking to advertisement websites that has put a program to disrupt its readers from posting messages or reading the articles. Well done TRE. This is not the first time you sold us out to your pay masters

  • KHAWk must be pubished:

    If it were that a elderly was there at the collision and had died or a pregnant lady had miscarriaged, will KHAW BOON WAN HAVE REACTED DIFFERENTLY?

    SO, my point is not that there was no deaths but the serious Implications of this accident that proves there is a SYSTEMIC FAILURE in the GLC and LTA.

    Desmond and Khaw still receiving their world highest salaries and year end bonus for countless failures at national levels?

  • System Design perspective:

    From a System design point of view the CHRONIC Multi-Faceted smrt Failures is not just Technical but also company cultural and policy failures.

    Its a Entire Systemic Failure.

    The whole lines have to be shut down and then only can ROPT CAUSE BE IDENTIFIED.

    THIS IS WHY AFTER MANY YEARS, SMRT STILL HAVING FAILURES EVERY NOW AND THEN.

    ITS A HALLMARK OF SHAME FOR SINGAPURA.

  • Who Watches the Watchmen:

    With all the SMRT manpower concentrating on all the lines, this begs us to wonder who is taking care of the Thomson line construction. Can we all bet the Thomson line is going to be plagued with problems also when it opens.

    @LTK, don’t be a gentleman. I know you were brought up a gentleman because of your education. But don’t forget you are fighting with PAP, a mafia group, they go for your throat at every opportunity, like a pack of hyenas. Remember they suggested hara-kiri?

    PAP is never kind to opponents, individual or a group!!!

    So Workers Party, attack the ball when you got a chance! If you do not want to kill at least make it hurts.

    Yes, thats why many call WP a PAPA B-Team.

    WP has not questioned with the bona fide Opposition Style that is universal.

    I think WP’s rationale for this is , they think their style is right and that is whats worrying about WP. They have gone astray from JBJ style. And I am sure LTK thinks this is right. This old man over the decades of trying to stay out of the jaws of the dragon have possibly adapted to a perverted form of Opposition style.

    He must get out of WP asap for the sake of the younger WP leaders-in-waiting.
