Commentary: Focus SMRTís recovery on dealing with delays and disruptions decisively


SMRTís efforts to address the tunnel flooding incident are laudable but the company should focus on productive ways to manage future delays and disruptions, says NUS Business Schoolís Dr Nitin Pangarkar



By Nitin Pangarkar

15 Nov 2017 06:30AM (Updated: 15 Nov 2017 06:40AM)


SINGAPORE: Recently, SMRT has come under criticism for issues ranging from train disruptions late last week leaving commuters angry over the lack of official announcements about the impending delays, to the more serious matter about the falsification of maintenance records by some of its employees that led to the MRT tunnel flooding in early October.

It seems neither commuters nor SMRT staff can catch a break.

While the companyís woes have been analysed from a variety of perspectives, many commentators have focused narrowly on specific issues such as the amnesty offered to staff to come clean and report gaps in processes, and the tunnel flooding incident.

Few have offered constructive suggestions on what SMRT management can do about its more problematic and pervasive challenge of dealing with seemingly more frequent delays and disruptions more decisively.

Having studied the responses of several other organisations such as Johnson and Johnson, BP and Singapore Airlines that have gone through crises, there are some guiding principles that may be instructive for SMRT management, in my opinion.

1. FOCUS ON CONTROLLABLE ASPECTS IN SHORT TERM


One of the first tasks of SMRT management should be to avoid knee-jerk reactions.

It is easy to paint with a broad brush and talk about broken culture. Not only is such talk demoralising for staff but it may also be inaccurate - after all, SMRT has received high praise from global surveys for its operational efficiency and service standards for many years.

SMRTís internal communications bears repeating the key message that SMRT has a responsibility to provide safe and reliable transportation and any future breaches jeopardising safety or reliability will be dealt with in the strictest manner, with the concerned employees being held accountable.

But a more productive course of action is for SMRT management to determine whether the cheating incident was a localised break in culture or an organisation-wide malaise, and focus their recovery accordingly.

In doing so, the management also needs to make a distinction between factors that are controllable in the short run versus those that can be fixed only in the long run. Ageing equipment can cause breakdowns but that equipment can be replaced or upgraded only in the medium term since the service has to keep operating, posing constraints on quick replacement.

Signalling fault causes morning delays on Circle Line


15 Nov 2017 06:55AM (Updated: 15 Nov 2017 07:20AM)


SINGAPORE: Train service along the Circle Line was delayed during the morning rush hour on Wednesday (Nov 15) due to a signalling fault, operator SMRT said.

In a tweet at 6.42am, SMRT urged commuters to cater for an additional 20 minutes of travel time between Farrer Road and Buona Vista stations.

SMRT advised commuters to add 20 minutes of additional travel time from Buona Vista and Harbourfront MRT stations, in both directions.

In another tweet at 7.09am, the train operator announced that free bus services were available between Botanic Gardens and Kent Ridge stations.

In an earlier tweet at 6.28am, SMRT said a signal fault had caused slower train service between Botanic Gardens and Haw Par Villa.

Really even new line also got problem . I wonder what is wrong with their signalling system ? Is it safe to travel on the mrt ? So how Mr Khaw ? Why don't you set up a COI to once and for all to sole all these issues . Do you think it is fair to your commuters to be always late for their work and appointments ? So you still want to vote for PAP ?

Signal fault delays trains on Circle Line on Wednesday morning

PUBLISHED 20 MIN AGO

SINGAPORE - A signal fault held up service in both directions on the Circle Line on Wednesday (Nov 15) morning.

Rail operator SMRT first tweeted at 6.28am, warning commuters that trains are moving slower between Buona Vista and HarbourFront stations.

"We are investigating the fault," it added.

Less than 15 minutes later, SMRT said to add 20 minutes' travel time between the stations.

SMRT Corporation @SMRT_Singapore
[CCL]: Due to a Signal fault between #Farrer Road and # Buona Vista .Pls add 20mins train travel time between #Buona Vista and HarbourFornt on both bounds.

On Twitter, some commuters complained that trains were not moving at all.

The last major fault on the Circle Line occurred during the morning peak on Sept 11, when a train was rendered inoperable near Marymount station after emergency brakes were applied.

The faulty train had to be pushed out of the way by another train, affecting thousands of commuters on their way to work and school.

I wonder if commuters can sue SMRT or not ???

Circle Line, East-West Line hit by separate faults on Wednesday morning

15 Nov 2017 06:55AM (Updated: 15 Nov 2017 08:49AM)


SINGAPORE: Both the Circle Line and East-West Line were affected by delays during the morning rush hour on Wednesday (Nov 15) due to two separate faults.

Delays on the Circle Line were caused by a signalling fault, SMRT said in a tweet at 6.42am. It advised commuters to expect 20 minutes of additional travel time between Buona Vista and HarbourFront MRT stations, in both directions.

In another tweet at 7.22am, the train operator announced that free bus services were available between Paya Lebar and HarbourFront stations.

In an earlier tweet at 6.28am, SMRT said a signal fault had caused slower train service between Botanic Gardens and Haw Par Villa.

The fault was cleared more than two hours later, although trains and stations remained crowded, SMRT said.

SMRT train hits stationary train at Joo Koon MRT station; 25 injured


SMRT and LTA said the train behind a stalled train “moved forward unexpectedly” and “came into contact” with the first train.

PUBLISHED 1 HOUR AGO UPDATED9 SEC AGO

Christopher Tan Senior Transport Correspondent

SINGAPORE - An SMRT train hit a stationary one at the Joo Koon MRT station platform around 8am on Wednesday (Nov 15) during the morning peak hour when trains are usually packed.

The Straits Times understands that the incident has to do with a malfunction of the new signalling system.

The SMRT and Land Transport Authority (LTA) said in a statement that at 8.18am, a train heading westwards in the direction of Tuas Link station stalled at Joo Koon station on the East-West Line.

About a minute later, a second train stopped behind the first train but soon after moved forward unexpectedly and "came into contact with the first train".

A total of 23 passengers and two SMRT staff sustained light to moderate injuries and were taken conscious to the National University Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

The Singapore Civil Defence Force was alerted around 8.30am.

Re: 2 young lives lost

I suggest SMRT close for 1 mth. And go overhaul, service, or watever fucking maintenance need to be done. After 1 month ,make that fucker Khaw to declare its safe and then promise the public no more fault line lah, signal line lah, collision lah next 5 years. Fuck lah so many reasons and excuses. If after close for 1 mth and then problems still persist, then Khaw must resign and crawl back to Penang!

How to understand the Joo Koon MRT station train collision

If you're a regular public transport commuter, this is what you understand.

By Belmont Lay | November 15, 2017



Two SMRT trains were involved in a collision at the Joo Koon MRT station platform around 8am on Wednesday, Nov. 15.


What happened?

A train heading in the direction of Tuas Link station stalled at Joo Koon station at 8.18am.

A minute later, a second train stopped behind the first faulty train.

At 8.20am, which was another minute later, the second train moved forward unexpectedly, and came into contact with the first train.

A total of 25 people ó 23 passengers and two SMRT staff ó sustained light to moderate injuries and were taken conscious to the National University Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

They were believed to have been thrown off balance by the impact.

Hereís how to understand the Joo Koon MRT station train boop in context

1. If SMRT was a person with feelings

2. This accident comes one day after Public Transport Workersí Appreciation Day

The universe is either conspiring against SMRT or bad luck is a thing.

Shagged.

3. The trains booping each other could be the result of the new signalling system

After all that bother with putting in place a new signalling system, it doesnít work that well.

The implications of this, if true, are unimaginable. It could mean more time needed to tweak the system and more down time for trains, and more inconveniences for commuters

Joo Koon MRT train incident: Passengers thrown to the floor, evacuated from driver's cabin, says witness

Twenty-three passengers and two SMRT staff suffered light to moderate injuries in the incident.

PUBLISHED 2 HOURS AGO

Adrian Lim Transport Correspondent


SINGAPORE - Mr Alexandru Robu, 35, was on the westbound train on the East-West Line, when it came to a sudden halt just before Joo Koon MRT station, causing passengers to lose their balance and fall.

"I've experienced sudden stops before on the MRT, but this time it was really bad," the service coordinator told The Straits Times.

Mr Robu, who works in a marine equipment firm, was on the SMRT train which hit a stationary train at Joo Koon at around 8am on Wednesday (Nov 15). According to rail operator SMRT, the train Mr Robu was on stopped behind the first train, but moved forward unexpectedly and came into contact with it.

A total of 23 passengers and two SMRT staff sustained light to moderate injuries and were taken conscious to the National University Hospital and Ng Teng Fong General Hospital.

Mr Robu said about 70 per cent of the commuters in his train, including himself, were thrown to the floor by the sudden halt. He said he was unhurt.

He said that one man, who looked to be in his 30s, was still lying on the cabin floor, when most other passengers got up after a few minutes.

"I went up to him and apparently he had hit his head and had a back injury. So I held his hand and talked to him," said Mr Robu, adding that he also asked SMRT staff to call for an ambulance.

Mr Robu said his train remained where it was for 20 minutes. Commuters asked SMRT staff to open the doors of the first train carriage, so they could get onto the platform. But they were told it was not possible, as all the doors would have to be opened, he added.

SMRT staff later decided to evacuate the passengers from the driver's cabin, one at a time.

Things always happen after Khaw opens his big mouth

15 November morning, I was riding the MRT towards Joo Koon from Pioneer. I was at the front cabin of the train that almost reached Joo Koon MRT. At exactly 8.20 am, there was a loud bang, and a violent shaking threw everyone onto the floor. The lights also suddenly went out. I almost thought we were about to fall over.

From the pilot cabin, we could hear the Driver speaking on the radio. He spoke to the control center that the train behind had collided with the train behind.

A Bangladeshi or Indian man could not get up. He hit his head in the collision. A Caucasian man (possibly from Europe), rendered assistance.

I tried pressing the comms button, but there was no response. The Caucasian man spoke to the driver through the opening of the door, informing that there is an injured person on board.

An SMRT staff came from the other side to check on the casualty. He probably came from the rear of the train. We asked him if it was possible to open the train door to let the injured person out. The staff said that if the train door was opened, then all the train doors would be opened at the same time, which would endanger passengers walking on the electrified tracks. I asked him if it was possible to just open only a single door. He replied they cannot control it like that.

After a long time, the front door from the driver side was opened. 2 passengers helped the injured man to his feet and got him out first. The rest of us then followed outside. It was 8.50, half an hour since the collision.

At the control station of Joo Koon, people were forming a long queue. They were queuing to get the excuse sheet, as well as to cancel the overstay status, as they cannot tap out with their EZ Link cards.

To my dismay, I realized that the gantry of Joo Koon was still deducting fares. The one thing that never breaks down. I approached the staff, explained the fare deduction should be cancelled. She told me that she has no power to make such a decision, and just referred me to another staff. After approaching 3 staff, the male SMRT staff opened one gate with no fare deduction. I told him the fare waiver should be for the whole station, not just one gate, but he said this was the best he could do.
