For at least 2 decades, Singapore’s trains served us faithfully. Arriving within minutes of each other, almost always on schedule. Ferrying us to work and back home, to nightspots, to school, hungover. It does not make the problem less serious or give those affected their time back, but I hope it gives some sense of scale.
A pat on the back to the men and women who were activated to remedy the hiccups. You are some of the world’s most efficient people. Fixing a large problem like that could not have been easy, and with such speed!
(Of the bureaucrats who run the organisation, one can only wish to say the same.)
Here’s a thank you from a Singaporean. Hope it makes it through all the grousing.
