SINGAPORE — Deriding the Bukit Panjang Light Rail Transit (LRT) system, Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan on Tuesday (Sept 12) described it as an “afterthought” that was built under political pressure, resulting in a design that makes for uncomfortable rides.

“No LRT is designed that way, in such a masochistic manner, where you force yourself up and down, twist and turn,” Mr Khaw, who is also Coordinating Minister for Infrastructure, said at a ceremony to mark the completion of power rail replacements on the North-South and East-West lines.

For the bukit Panjang LRT, it is possible to shut down its service for a period and time and meanwhile use buses to take over the service. The shut down will privide enough time and space for them to upgrade the whole system. After that if it fails again, don't give excuses. Also don't use the term 'masochistic', so difficult to understand, use a more technical one.
