      A software glitch that resulted in the Joo Koon MRT station train collision arose when the faulty train was "transiting between the old and new signalling systems", said the Land Transport Authority (LTA) in a statement on Thursday (Nov 16).

      Absolute horror thinking the potential for serious injury!

      I agree with you, how could this possibly happen - in Singapore.

      Software glitch - OK. But what made the difference this time? I guess it wasn't the first time such a glitch have happened, but this time, it got worse.

    There are a new signal system being tested on the two oldest lines at the moment. (Mark can possibly elaborate, since he installed the original one)

      It would be inappropriate for me to comment Ombugge. But yes, as you say, the line is being upgraded.
      For the record, I didn't install the original signalling system by myself - a large and highly talented team from both the client and contractor sides did that, I came along afterwards and did minor tinkering on some little bits!

    Orchard Road is decorated and ready for X-mas. Since I'm not there to post own pictures this year, this CNA report will have to do:

    A video with very unsuitable music, but it covers Orchard road from Scott Road junction to Dhoby Ghaut:

        The Singapore government have been and continue to bet big on container terminals:

          And no mention of an observation area or tours for tourists.

          No, no tourists allowed per HSEQ and ISPS rules and regulation. I don't think there are any restriction on the seaward side. You can get pretty close with a launch, as long as the safety rules are followed. Drone flying directly above the terminal will probably not be allowed though.

          PS> Tourists are supposed to go shopping in Orchard Road and visit Chinatown, not go looking at the industrial side of Singapore.
