Under-maintained, under-equipped, undertrained and overwhelmed

May 5, 2012 - 1:15am



We are now at the halfway mark of the hearing into the two major train disruptions last December.

The Committee of Inquiry (COI) hearing, which started on April 16 and is expected to last six weeks, has heard from SMRT train drivers, station managers, maintenance staff and commuters affected by the breakdowns.

Among the things revealed: Under-maintenance, for example of metal train wheels; and under-equipped systems, such as tunnel lighting that was not bright enough.

The New Paper summarises what has been revealed during the proceedings so far.


Under shortage manpower? Under no spare parts ? Under trained? Now is time solve it the problem and back to square one after 25yrs in service. Work together and Work like family. Work for a living and Work for the Singaporean used. Work hard and Be Smart. SMRT moving on for the future.
