All-of-SMRT Approach to Keep Trains Moving

In SMRT, all staff have a part to play in keeping train services moving. SMRT managers and staff, not just those on the front line, also perform customer service duties during periods when large numbers of commuters are expected to use the network to attend events. All new staff joining SMRT are also familiarised with different aspects of commuter operations before taking up other assignments in the company.

Rail Renewal Milestone: 188,000 Sleepers Replaced

To enhance rail reliability and to provide better journeys for millions of commuters who travel with SMRT every day, we embarked on the biggest rail transformation programme since rail operations began in Singapore in 1987. SMRT Trains and the Land Transport Authority took three years to replace all 188,000 wooden sleepers with concrete ones on the North-South and East-West Lines.

Assistant Engineer at the Rolling Stock Maintenance team, Mohamad Khairudy Bin Yahya is an unsung hero, working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure that all parts of the MRT trains are well-functioning. 👷‍♂️🔧

In his 4 years with SMRT, the cheerful and friendly Khairudy has many daily responsibilities at work, including identifying faults and performing maintenance on trains to provide better and more reliable rides for our commuters. 🚇

Today, LTA hosted the MOU signing between SMRT and our industry counterparts SBST and ST Engineering. Under this MOU, we will share engineering knowledge and capabilities in various areas with one another to improve rail reliability. 🚇👷‍♂👷‍♀

#OneTeam #AllabouttrainsTaipei Metro 台北捷運 is a good operator. Its former Chairman and President, Prof Tsay Huel-Sheng helped us a lot in our efforts to raise our rail reliability. When we first met in 2016, he gave me several good advice. One was to build up our local capabilities in repairing electronic cards! Many small components keep a train running smoothly. The electronic card is one such critical component as a fault can disrupt signals between the train and track equipment. And faulty electronic card is a common cause of train disruption. When it happens, we are relying on the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) to repair or replace the faulty card. This can take hours, if they have local stock, or days, if they don’t.

Taipei had similar problems. Prof Tsay’s solution was to build up local capabilities, thus reducing their dependence on the OEM suppliers: saving cost and more importantly cutting down-time. That is why I welcome moves by our operators and vendors to pool their expertise and resources. Today, SMRT, SBS Transit Ltd, and ST Engineering signed an MOU to develop local capabilities in rail maintenance and engineering and one immediate focus is on the repair of electronic cards. It is a good step towards building a strong #SGRail core. This will benefit both our transport workers and commuters.
