Will Etihad do a bacon sandwich for that price? I didn't think so.

tullamarine I don't think Etihad (or Emirates for that matter) will do a bacon sandwich at any price!!! Qantas customers on Sydney/Melbourne-London lost bacon from the breakfast menu following the Emirates alliance.

BaconButty I finally understand the true horrors of globalization.

From 2014, 41 new trains will be added to the North-South East-West Lines’ (NSEWL), 18 to the North East Line (NEL) and 24 to the Circle Line (CCL), increasing capacity on the lines by 30, 70 and 60 per cent respectively.

Further capacity will be created by a signalling upgrade on the North-South East-West Lines’ (NSEWL).

LTA said it also plans to buy more light rail vehicles, with an additional 13 carriages to be procured for the Bukit Panjang LRT system.

Sixteen single car trains on the Sengkang-Punggol LRT (SPLRT) system will be modified to allow two-car operation and a further 16 vehicles will be procured, increasing capacity by 40 per cent

Some little pictures of my trip to Singapore (transport).

Paya Lebar MRT station (platform of the East-West line)



Circle line at Botanic Gardens



North-East line at Chinatown (the Downtown line was to be opened in a few days.



Dhoby Ghaut station on the North East line.



The North South line trains were the most crowded.



Circle line train



Nichols Highway Station on the Circle line

Thank you! Knowing you, you'd quite enjoy my photos of Japanese transport (well, Tokyo metropolitan transport) that are in the Japanese thread from the end of 2013.

SINGAPORE: Land Transport Authority announced on April 21 that it had awarded S$1·15bn worth of contracts covering stations and signalling on the Thomson and Eastern Region lines.

Construction of three stations on the Thomson Line is due to begin in the second quarter of 2014 for completion by 2021. Mount Pleasant is to be built by a joint venture of RSEA Engineering Corp, Eng Lee Engineering and Wai Fong Construction under a S$207m contract. Along with Woodlands, Lentor, Mayflower and Sin Ming, Mount Pleasant will be a civil defence shelter. Stevens, which will provide interchange between the Thomson and Downtown lines, is to be built by Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co under a S$441m contract. Hock Lian Seng Infrastructure is to build Maxwell under a S$222m contract.

Signalling and communications contracts for the automated Thomson and Eastern Region lines have also been awarded. Singapore Technologies Electronics is to supply communications under a S$124m contract.

Free metro travel spreads the peak load
14 May 2014

SINGAPORE: Land Transport Authority is to extend its free pre-peak metro travel scheme by one year to June 23 2015. Passengers who end their journey at 18 central metro stations before 07.45 on weekdays get free travel, while those exiting between 07.45 and 08.00 get a discount.

About 7% of commuters have shifted their travel out of the morning peak since the introduction of free travel in last June. This has resulted in a more even distribution of ridership, with the ratio of peak (08.00–09.00) to pre-peak (07.00–8.00) travel falling from 2·7 to 2·1.

An LTA survey found most commuters who changed times did so because of the free travel. Two out of three of those who had not shifted said this was because they do not have flexible work arrangements, and so LTA is to intensify efforts to encourage organisations to implement flexible working arrangements

Singapore orders driverless trains for combined line
29 May 2014

SINGAPORE: Land Transport Authority has ordered 91 four-car driverless trainsets from a consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CSR Qingdao Sifang for S$749m. The trainsets are to be used on the Thomson and Eastern Region lines, which will be operated as one line when both have been completed.

Kawasaki Heavy Industries is responsible for the overall train design, while CSR Qingdao Sifang is to produce the carbodies and undertake final assembly. The trains will be powered using a 750 V DC third-rail power supply and will have ‘improved current regeneration capability’, according to LTA. Each car will have five sets of doors for rapid boarding and alighting at stations.

The 21 km, 12-station Eastern Region Line from Changi to Marina Bay is to be completed in 2020. When the 30 km underground Thomson Line is completed a year later, the two lines will be linked to form one route from Changi to Woodlands North serving 33 stations

Bukit Panjang LRT takes delivery of first new train
23 JUN, 2014


Photo by Land Transport Authority

Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has taken delivery of the first of 13 new light rail vehicles for the Bukit Panjang LRT System (BPLRT).

The new vehicles, which will be operated by SMRT, will be gradually introduced onto the network over the next few months to relieve congestion on the system during the morning and evening peaks.

SMRT will bring the new trains into service from the final quarter of this year following a period of testing at Bukit Panjang depot.

Currently the system is served by 19 train cars in single-car and two-car configurations. Once commissioned, the 13 new vehicles will increase peak capacity by 50 per cent, LTA has said.

The additional train cars will allow the operator to tun more two-car services and reduced headways between the Choa Chu Kang and Bukit Panjang LRT stations are expected to cut journey times on the network.

LTA is delivering a series of other projects between now and 2016 designed to improve services on the light rail system. LTA is constructing two new additional platforms at Choa Chu Kang LRT station to reduce crowding. Currently, commuters board and alight from the trains at a single platform, which can become congested during peak hours.

Works to enable both single-car and two-car train operations on the Sengkang-Punggol LRT systems are also now underway

Groundbreaking launches Thomson Line construction
27 Jun 2014


A groundbreaking ceremony officially launched construction of Singapore's Thomson Line on June 27




The 30 km Thomson Line will run entirely underground from Woodlands North to the Central Business District and Marina Bay

SINGAPORE: A groundbreaking ceremony officially launched construction of the Thomson Line on June 27. Scheduled to open in three phases from 2019 to 2021, the 30 km north–south line will run entirely underground from Woodlands North to the Central Business District and Marina Bay.

It will largely parallel the existing North-South Line, providing an additional 60% capacity to help relieve crowding along the corridor. The Thomson Line’s 22 stations will include six interchanges connecting with all five existing metro lines, and daily ridership is predicted to reach 400 000.

Land Transport Authority has now awarded 22 of the 25 major civil contracts for the line, with the remaining three to be awarded by the end of this year. A consortium of Kawasaki Heavy Industries and CSR Qingdao Sifang will supply the driverless trainsets.

Ground-freezing construction techniques are be used on the metro network for the first time, to prevent water seepage during tunnelling at Marina Bay where the Thomson, North-South and Circle line tunnels will intersect.

‘The Thomson Line marks yet another milestone towards realising our Land Transport Master Plan’s vision to double the length of our rail network’, said Minister for Transport Lui Tuck Yew at the groundbreaking ceremony. ‘When this is achieved by 2030, our MRT system would be comparable in network density to New York and London. By then too, eight in 10 households will be within a 10 min walk from a train station.’

The minister also confirmed that the the West Loop of the Punggol LRT is scheduled to open for revenue service on June 29, and the proposed Canberra station is to be built between Yishun and Sembawang on the North-South Line.

In the long term, the Thomson Line will be linked to Johor Bahru in Malaysia via a cross-border rapid transit link from Woodlands North station

The first new train for the Circle Line is delivered to Kim Chuan depot, photo by Land Transport Authority

SINGAPORE: Land Transport Authority has taken delivery of the first new trainsets for the North East and Circle lines from the Shanghai Alstom Transport Co joint venture of Alstom Transport and Shanghai Electric Group.

These are the first of 18 trainsets for the North East Line and 24 for the Circle Line ordered in February 2012, in what Alstom Transport says is its largest ever contract in the Asia-Pacific region. Shanghai Alstom Electrical Equipment Co and Alstom’s site in Valenciennes were involved in the design and production.

The driverless trains from Alstom’s Metropolis family are expected to enter service in mid-2015. They will increase capacity by an estimated 60-70% on the two lines.
