MRT train delays are back in vogue, after going several months of delay free MRT days. And for the first time since he was appointed Transport Minister, Khaw Boon Wan does not have to face the public and come up with more excuses on why the world class transport system and breaking down again.
Khaw is on several weeks MC for fracturing his arm after falling from his high perch. He would not have been pleased to read about the latest delays in his transport diaspora, but will relish for once having another Minister face the heat. Foreign Minister Vivian Balakrishnan is temporary in charge of transport matters, but he will have been too busy negotiating with Malaysia on various issues to take note of the latest delay.
For Singaporeans, MRT delays are becoming a norm, and whole complaints will be heard far and wide, nothing will improve, and Singaporeans will face more delays in the nit too distant future.
