I read somewhere that the Japanese build 3 tracks for each line. At any one time, 2 will be in use and 1 can be the backup. No problem servicing them either. Anyway, too late for Singapore I guess.nakatago wrote:If the Japanese can afford to have trains every minute during rush hour without them breaking down unexpectedly, surely, another first-world country and world-governance leader like Singapore can do as well.local lad wrote:It seems this problem happened after they've reduced the waiting time for trains at the station , due to overcrowding.

I hear the MRT was buggered again this morning, up Yishun way. Not sure how, could be the trains are less frequent so people are having to wait a long time in order to be able to get onto one...

From the above it seems a problem of rail clip design, historic lack of maintenance, and perhaps choice of poor construction engineers on the Circle Line.
p.s. I can't deal with Stomp, it is like wading through an ocean of adolescent spew desperately hoping to come upon a pearl of wisdom.

"I dun wanna no dat ..........."
You think - all that crowing over how great the education is in Singapore and that's what it produces
Hmmm the MRT - a journo admitted in a newspaper here last year that she had in the past compared the Singapore MRT to the London underground and all the trouble that goes on with that and I thought - erm OK, she's comparing something built in the 1860s with something that was built more than 120 years later...........oooookaaaayyyy
I wonder how the MRT will be doing in 2180......
