  1. 1.5million per km of walkway. That's just... WOW. SINGAPORE: When it poured, some Fajar Secondary School students were late for school while waiting out the rain at void decks or at bus stops. Others turned up at school soaking wet, having run the distance that's not covered by sheltered walkways. But since sheltered walkways leading to the school gate were built this year, the school in Bukit Panjang has seen more students turning up on time on rainy days, said its vice principal. The walkways are part of 200km worth of sheltered walkways that have been built in the past five years under the Land Transport Authority's (LTA) Walk2Ride programme. LTA announced on Saturday (Sep 15) that a milestone in the programme has been completed, at a cost of S$300 million. "Where feasible, walkways have been built to schools, healthcare facilities and other public amenities within a 400-metre radius of MRT stations, and within a 200-metre radius of bus interchanges, LRT stations and selected bus stops with high commuter volumes," said LTA.

  2. Singapore yesterday unveiled its first electric taxi prototype at the biennial Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. Plug it in, wait 15 minutes and this electric taxi will be ready to travel up to a distance of 200km. Singapore on Thursday unveiled its first electric taxi prototype at the biennial Tokyo Motor Show in Japan. The sleek, lightweight vehicle took about two years to conceptualise and build. It can zip from 0 to 100kmh in 10 seconds and seat four people, including the driver, comfortably. Among its other features, the front passenger seat can be converted to fit children aged nine months to three years old, and its unique air-conditioning system can cool each seat individually. "This helps to save energy because when the driver is alone, it is not necessary to cool the entire vehicle," said Dr Harry Hoster, scientific director of the TUM-Create electric vehicle and transportation research programme. The programme, which is funded by the National Research Foundation, is a joint effort between Nanyang Technological University and the Technische Universitat Munchen in Germany. The researchers said introducing electric taxis here would help reduce carbon emissions as the vehicles are on the road most of the time. From January to August, a two-shift taxi here travelled almost an average 300km per day while ferrying customers, according to the Land Transport Authority's statistics. The team claimed the taxi would also be cheaper to own and maintain at S$426,000 (US$340,881) over eight years, compared with S$460,000 (US$368,088) for existing diesel versions. The figures include the cost of the vehicle, fuel, tax, maintenance, insurance and others, but the team stressed that these were preliminary estimates. The researchers declined to comment on the prototype's cost or to estimate its commercial price, saying that this would depend on manufacturers. The prototype is also likely to be modified to bring down costs. For example, its shell is made up of light but expensive carbon fibre. Manufacturers may use other, cheaper materials for some parts, said the team. While the car is suitable for Singapore's climate and geographical size, putting it on roads here will require infrastructure such as charging stations for its super-fast charging system. German technology firm Bosch Software Innovations has installed more than 57 charging stations here as part of a government electric vehicle trial, but these cannot be used for the prototype's charging system. "We also need to study how plugging in the vehicles will affect the national grid, among other things," said Professor Subodh Mhaisalkar, executive director of NTU's Energy Research Institute. The Singapore Land Transport Authority and several taxi operators did not respond to queries by press time.

  5. Was watching DC yesterday "Mega-structure". At the end of the show, it mentioned there is a future project to fight sea level rising, that is to build a dam that run 200km around the whole singapore island!! Wow!! Maybe after 100 years, the only land that seen in this region. Just to share!!
  6. Holden and Fords, Australian pride failed on them at the most crucial moment. Nonetheless a dramatic chase. TWO police cars had to abandon a 200km car chase because one had a defective siren and the other's radiator hose blew, while a police helicopter crew lacked the necessary maps for the chase. Two teenagers are being questioned after the high-speed car chase from Sydney's west to Mudgee. It began when police tried to stop a Subaru WRX at St Marys about 8.30pm (AEST) yesterday, police said today. They chased the car to the Bells Line of Road. The Subaru avoided road spikes put down by police at the weighbridge at Bell in the Blue Mountains, and Lithgow Police took over the pursuit. The chase continued through Lithgow to Mudgee, down the Castlereagh Highway, where police stopped the chase for safety reasons after the Subaru turned onto a dirt track. Lithgow Police today arrested two male teenagers at about 5.10am after a Lithgow service station worker became suspicious of a vehicle and its occupants. The teens were being interviewed by police. Chifley Local Area Command Superintendent Martin Wookey said the two police cars had to pull out of the chase because one had a defective siren and the other's radiator hose blew. "That's what happens," he said. "We (NSW Police) have a fleet of I think 14,000 and the cars are new and well maintained, but sometimes there are faults." The Polair police helicopter tracking the offenders also had to pull out of the chase because of the terrain and rising fog, he said. The crew did not have maps of the area. "It (Polair) took off from its base on another job then they were advised about the pursuit," Supt Wookey said. "They can't carry every map because the helicopter wouldn't be able to take off so they only take the ones they need. "In this instance they were coming from another job and didn't have the right maps with them." Supt Wookey said Polair had tracked the Subaru with spotlights and thermal tracking. "With a pursuit over two hours over 200km and no injuries or damage to property, I am very proud of them (officers)," he said.
  7. My frd witness a stunt whereby a Rex E-braked when travelling in excess of 200km/HR in a deserted Malaysian road.The Rex screeeched to a stop with the 2 rear tires lifting up to approx above knee to waist level.Apparently this was done in purpose as the driver was a rich SOB with money to throw. Wat I'll like to know is that is it possible to e-brake til a car's rear end come up. As apparently I had told another guy frd abt the incident and he swore that it's not possible as the car would have simply skidded sideways or spin etc and told me he's 100% sure it cannot be done and I'll be the joke in town to tell ppl abt wat happ though I tend to disagree with wat he had said I mean stopping from 200KM/hr,where is the momentum and inertia force going to go right?
