Hundreds of commuters blast LTA for introducing extensive security checks at MRT stations

Like travelers at airports, MRT commuters will be required to walk through a metal detector and put their belongings through X-ray scanners. According to a senior LTA official, it took an estimated eight to ten minutes to organise and clear EACH commuter in a similar exercise earlier this year.

  8. Why punish the commuters , can’t you see your train tracks are exposed , your overhead train pillars are exposed, in certain areas , this can be also a terrorist target ! are you going to put security personnel around this area 24/7. Improve border security and intelligence not punish the commuters. Get external overseas security Auditors to audit your train security .
