News from CNA. Looks like it is opening this year after all. I can't imagine the pressure the main contractors are under. You can read the full article in the source link below.

Downtown Line extension to open early
29 JUN, 2015



The second phase of Singapore’s Downtown Line is to open in December, several months earlier than originally planned.

Singapore’s Land Transport Authority (LTA) has announced that the 16.6-kilometre metro line will open before the end of the year, despite one of the project’s main contractors falling into insolvency part way through construction.

LTA said it had “completely resolved” a delay which resulted from Alpine Bau declaring bankruptcy in the middle of delivering a contract to build three of the line’s 12 stations

CCL and Lines announced (namely DTL and TEL) thereafter recently is third rail , IMO, is after LTA found that catenary lines sucks so they decided to have third rail as the power system thereafter.

SMRT and SBST are just general public transport operators with the name just denoting how they got their name. In fact SMRT is a combination of the defeato bus operator TIBS ,taxi service and the MRT operation ; Meanwhile, SBST is a combination of the original SBS bus service , ComfortDelgro Taxi services and the MRT service.
I never understand how splitting transport services helps competition or anyone. What purpose does splitting monopoly actually serve? I can understand splitting the two causeways into two owners as they both serve similar jobs, and if two lines run pararell then splitting may help, but here it's useless.

What is actually happening we wouldn't know, but by splitting the transport systems into 2 companies encouraged competition between the two to better each other. However , it's kinda required for either company to co-operate when there's breakdowns or disruption; whoever is having such problems would have to pay the other for the loss in helping. (During major disruption, fares are waived from the affected stations)
