S’poreans react to various religious leaders riding new Downtown Line 2 together

Posted on 18 December 2015

Three thoughts that must have went past your mind at some point.


Various religious leaders took a private ride on the new Downtown Line 2 (DTL2) on Thursday morning, Dec. 17.

They were joined by Transport Minister Khaw Boon Wan, who posted a photograph of the visit on his Facebook page.

The 12-station, 16.6km DTL2 will open officially on Dec. 27. It will start from Bukit Panjang towards Rochor, before connecting to the Downtown Line 1 at Bugis station.

Here are three thoughts Singaporeans have:


sian-half-auntie “Who needs engineering when you have religion?”
Qu Jiao Tang, 45-year-old ex-engineer


sian-half-uncle “If the Downtown Line 2 breaks down, that means there is no god.”
Shao Xiang, 63-year-old alms distributor


happy-bird-girl “These religious leaders have such packed schedules praying for different infrastructures in Singapore.”
Huai Liao, 17-year-old student
