Yes, and during peak hours I have to say?

Actually, the real problem is that it is not regular. Sometimes it comes together. Sometimes more then 20 mins. That is how it pissed me off so much. If it is always about 20 mins, I can always time my arrival at the bus stop.

Cause high speed train isnt novel or practical.

Trams are novel and yet they are quite practical. Seriously no point having elevated viaducts if the place the train serves isn't as built up as a HDB estate. In HDB estates above 15 floor buildings are the norm but not in One North so there's less passenger traffic. The costs incurred would probably be higher if you built viaducts.

But elevated systems are not to allow easier access to higher buildings what...they are just to save space on the ground level mah?
