Crushed by the wheels of progress....
We must tell all Singaporeans to hop onto the train and not in front of it. The train is supposed to help you get to where you want to go but don't use it as a fast way to get to your final destination. Please be mindful that there are people on the train who need to get on with their lives and enjoy the progress that the govt has planned for them. In Singapore, it is not right to slow everyone down just because of one person....the train is like our society, it has to move forward all the time. Those who cannot keep up are crushed by the wheels of success. Those who can hardly keep up are "fed up with progress" But don't worry Singaporeans, the SMRT will provide buses to minimise the disruption to your happy lives so you can still carry on without being inconvenienced.....as a highly profitable enterprise, SMRT has the means to overcome minor disruptions to its service.

SINGAPORE: Westbound train services between Queenstown and Jurong East MRT stations were disrupted after a man was hit by a train, and died, at Clementi MRT station. SMRT says buses were provided for about 11,700 passengers who were affected by the disruption. This incident comes almost two weeks after a similar death at the Chinese Gardens MRT. Police have classified the death as an unnatural one and are investigating. - CNA/so
