    • Don't know any possibility to solve the prob of breaking down.    

      If anyone has read the email from ex mrt staff about sounding out the mrt staff in charge about rectification of the problem there and then to avoid future breakdown.  Staff in charge know of problem but don't care.   

      Such irresponsibility and no accountability are what we commuters who keep paying constant in transport fare get.   The who mrt company need to be revamp.  Get the culprits out and penalise them heavily.

       

    • Lui tuck yew leaving, good riddance.

      anyone put in tt position is just suay

      Actually I am inclined to beg to differ. I would say he played his cards well.

      To be fair, he wasn't a lazy slouch, and yes, he "suay" to kena this portfolio.

      BUT

      How many who had served as MOT can have claimed to:

      1. Over-turn a long-standing policy of SG govt in not subsidising public transport (in terms of paying for bus and bus driver). 

      2. Over-see a radical change in bus industry structure to contracting model.

      3. Do so many upgrades to the existing NSEWL all at once and in haste following the major train disruptions.

      These are the 3 off the top of my head and I imagine these are like shining medals on his CV. Not to mention, the transport industry has always been, and will always be a major mover of the economy, and people also forget MOT deals with AIR, LAND, SEA.

      In short, the MOT portfolio is more zai than what most people perceive it to be. That perception won't be the case for the industries. They will be ready to pounce on him.

      If I were him, I would have demonstrated to others (using CV) what I am capable of. I would sell myself after serving 2 terms (no mean feat ok!) for the people, and I would call it quits, while I can do so gracefully.

      And then I head to private sector for a not-so-xiong life (compared to MOT). Really, I dont know why people say chenghu life is keow kar. 

      Lui Tuck Yew is suay? It really depends on how you use the "suayness" and make it work you eventually.

      He decided time's up and left, and I would say fair winds and following seas to him.

    • Oh yes,  he raised transport fares more times than raymond lim.

       

      Keep raising transport fare is not bad.      ? ? ?

       

      Who has read the email from ex mrt staff about the fault of mrt was found out long time ago ,  staff in charge refused to do anything to avoid future fault. ? ?
