Posted on 19 February 2013

Legitimate concerns galore.

This project between two countries will be free from problems, said no Prime Minister ever.

Singaporeans from all walks of life are lauding the breakthrough agreement announced today to build a high speed rail link between Singapore and Kuala Lumpur by 2020.

And they are equally excited at the prospect that SMRT might be a part of this project.

One Singaporean, Jiang Zhen De, said the technological know-how of both countries will definitely make this project a reality beyond expectations.

He said: “I hope the Malaysians know what they are getting themselves into running a train line with Singapore.”

“The train track they will also use cable tie to make one is it?”

Others say the Singapore SMRT experience will be invaluable in guiding the operations and contingency plans of running a train line that serves the masses.

Da Di Tie, said: “I scared later the train break down then how? Got shuttle service also, right?”

Moreover, forward-looking Singaporeans are anticipating all logistical issues to be resolved with Malaysia in the picture.

Wai Guo Ren, a patriotic Singaporean, said: “I hope the China train drivers will not go on strike. But if they do, our Malaysian counterparts will take care of it as they will be staying over that side of the Causeway because they got more land and can accommodate them better there.”

Others though, are being a wet blanket

Gong Ren Dang said there is a possibility this project will not come to pass.

He said: “And will this breakthrough agreement even still hold if the current Malaysian government loses in the upcoming general election? Same for PAP come GE2016, right?”
