Stop-work order implemented as karma comes full circle

Posted on 24 June 2013

Downtown Line main contractor goes bust, construction halted at three stations.


The much-vaunted stop-work order — which many people inside the Internet have been demanding when the haze from Indonesia came to town but had been firmly resisted by the government — has finally come to pass.

The stop-work order was implemented after Alpine Bau GmbH, the main contractor of the Downtown Line Stage 2, went tits up and went bust.

As a result, work on three stations have been halted since Wednesday.

The stations affected are King Albert Park, Sixth Avenue, and Tan Kah Kee stations — notable because that’s where rich people reside and the last thing they need anyways, is public transportation.

This means the Downtown Line workers are all ba long long as they no longer have to go outdoors to slog it out and suck in soot and particulates even as PSI levels continue to be as high as Lindsay Lohan.

Singaporeans from all walks of life gave thanks to karma.

Orh Bi Goot, a Singaporean said: “Karma’s a bitch eh? Come back one full circle and piak your head.”
