Luckily no one is injured :)

 

Hopefully they can continue to test in-depth on the new cabin during this commissioning period and find out why it fell this time... solve this problem so that we can ride safely when it is put on line in the near future.

+ double-sided tape, super glue......

 

doesn't help when there are so many vendors touting its effectiveness. You go pasar malam see them demonstrate how super their super glue....... cut slipper into half, glue back, and it's brand new w/o cut line anymore......

 

Many buy happily, buy w/o realising the reality...... that you are most likely to use it on an old pair of slippers/or whatever things that broke...... and it won't work.

 

can use cable tie?

Was going to say that,

Just look at the freq of those old MIJ lifs of HDB & those new flats or LUP's new MIC lifts, compare the breakdown rate.

MIJ Kawasaki Heavy Industry's Trains Vs the newer fleet of MIC trains...

Glad no one was hurt.

Apparently they said it's a new line of cable car. Not the current old one which had an incident back in 1983.

MRT breakdown before National Day (8Aug).

Cable car falls after National Day (10Aug).

 

Everyone should be thankful that nothing happened on National Day.

I believe the cable car that have problem is a new system as reported in CNA.
It is reported as still undergoing testing.
