    SINGAPORE — Inadequate maintenance is believed to be behind the malfunctioning water-pumping system blamed for last weekend’s North-South Line (NSL) train disruption, Chinese daily Lianhe Zaobao reported on Thursday (Oct 12).

    “The pump was not operable during a critial period due to a lack of maintenance,” the report said, citing anonymous sources.


    Zaobao added that SMRT staff overseeing equipment maintenance could be transferred out of their posts for failing in their duties.

    The newspaper also reported that SMRT’s management was mulling over the staff transfers, although the company did not confirm the matter. The report gave no indication as to how many employees from the transport operator could be affected.

    TODAY’s queries to SMRT and the Land Transport Authority (LTA) on what caused the malfunction, and when the pumps were last serviced and how often they were maintained, have gone unanswered since the start of this week.

    The LTA had earlier disclosed that a malfunctioning water-pumping system was behind the underground tunnel flooding that started on Saturday evening and halted services across six stops on the 26-station NSL.

    The faulty system sent water overflowing from the stormwater sump pit, where rainwater accumulates, into the tunnel through the rail tracks where trains from Bishan travel underground towards Braddell.

    SMRT was forced to de-activate the trackside power supply as a safety precaution, crippling services from Ang Mo Kio to Newton stations until Sunday afternoon. The disruption affected the journeys of thousands in one of the worst rail trip-ups since 2011.

    A spokesperson for SBS Transit, which operates the Downtown Line, told TODAY that it had conducted extensive checks on its water-pumping systems and “have not found any issues”.

    Earlier this week, TODAY reported that the downpour over parts of Singapore on Saturday, though heavy, was relatively short and not unusually high by historical standards.

    The Meteorological Service Singapore said Bishan received the second-highest rainfall of 42.2mm within a half-hour period that day. During that period, heavier rainfall of 45.6mm beat down on Queenstown.

    However, in terms of daily total rainfall, Ang Mo Kio had the highest rainfall on record of 74.9mm.

    “While the rain over some parts of the island on Saturday was heavy, it was of relatively short duration and the rainfall recorded was not unusually high if compared to the long-term highest rainfall records for October,” the Meteorological Service Singapore spokesperson added.

    That's the problem of being nice but not good. I am sure the SMRT staff kena transferred out call their manager nice. Probably the nice manager will get transferred out too and the management scurried around like mouse to get good manager to clear the shit.

    History will always repeat itself as long as being nice dogs and snakes are rewarded, while being good human is called a devil.

    SMRT replaces maintenance V-P after flooding incident on North-South Line

    Scapegoat found!
    I told you all so a few days ago!

    All will be well!

    The Generals and cronies in SMRT can continue to laugh and laugh on way to bank.
    Scapegoat found and sacrificed securing Generals and cronies pay and bonuses
    Their pay and bonuses must be increased further to reward the top management for such diligent hunting of scapegoats

    it would not help. sinkie workers no matter whether they are engineers or technicians are some of the world’s worst chobolan leg shakers around. spent too much time on their mobiles surfing the web, chatting with mistresses, sexting with prostitutes, wasting time on fb, taking long breaks and meals, napping on the job, talking cock during smoke breaks. when it involves dirty sweaty work such as checking and maintaining a pump in an equipment room devoid of ac, don’t expect a sinkie worker to be there even though he’s paid thousands a month to do that job.

    Surely you don't expect a good scholar to be fired over this sort of error. It is sufficient to blame the ground level technicians for their incompetence and lack of professionalism.

    Yup!

    Did I not predict this course of action much earlier?

    We all know of the skills of the powers that be in Sinkapore!
    And true to form, they dazzled us again with what they know very well to do and what is expected of them to any problems.

    Of course not. Good scholar will only be fired for not being nice to boss. No need error at all.

    Don't forget jiuhukia workers rushing off on the dot to go home across border - while doing all the above.

    jiuhukia will cum to work very early in the morning due to traffic jam at the jb border. they spend at least 69 minutes in traffic. lagi worse by bus or pubic transportation as mrt doesn’t extend across the border. so they motorbike or carpool in lorry or van. but once they get to warehouse (not whorehouse) they work like bees while sinkies idle aimlessly and pretend to work and always volunteer to buy breakfast. sinkies disappear for breakfast for at least 69 minutes then return and chobolan and talk cock. since jiuhukia work their butts off from 6.9am to afternoon with a short lunch break, i let them go off at 3pm to start their commute back to jb. they get home further in jiuhu kampungs (not luxury homes in jb near sg) around 6.9pm. sinkies have to work to 4pm to deliver goods and return vehicles to warehouse or park them near their hdb homes. because sinkies don’t like to be sia suay to keep company vans and trucks near their homes they either return them at warehouse or park them far away and hail a uber or grab ride home. so they leave warehouse by 2pm to make their deliveries, and after that they can suka suka tuan or balik kampung or visit their mistresses. i know sinkies too well to incentivise them to deliver goods quickly and on time. otherwise, goods will be sitting idle in trucks and vans while sinkies hump-pump hookers or sextext at kopitiam until cow cums home.

    I don't know about warehouse jiuhukia but the office jiuhukia I know come to office early doesn't mean start work early. They listen to radio, surf the net, eat breakfast, gossiping, networking, etc etc.

    blame it on supervisor or manager who allow this office behavior to happen. leaders must know their workers and know how to incentivise them. all workers will tuan if given the freedom and laxity. most likely sinkie managers themselves are jerking off, wanking themselves silly, doing upskirt videos, or having long lunches at the expense of the company they work for.
