Changi Motorsports Hub delayed, again

Apparently, construction on the new Changi Motorsports Hub has been delayed once again, due to payment issues.

This is the latest in the long line of troubles for the much-anticipated facility, and once again casts doubt as to whether the track will ever come to fruition.

I'm sure that many enthusiasts and motorsports fans, like me, are disappointed by the latest news, and the progress that this project is making. Delay after delay, problem after problem.

You have to wonder, for a country like us, that are well-known for our efficiency, why do these things happen time and again? And they almost always relate to sports facilities.

Look at the National Stadium. It was planned to be closed and demolished in 2007, yet after a glitzy send-off, it remained in use for three years, before it was finally taken down last year. What a farce.

It's easy to blame cost factors, but do companies not ever have the foresight to plan for these things?

So much for Singapore wanting to become a sporting nation. It'll be a long while yet before we even come close to becoming one.

Usual startling lack of insight. Lots of questions asked and fingers pointed but no answers or even theories. Just read the news article and forget the rest.
