Gerald Giam Answering Media Queries on Expired Rail Assets

“Sleepers were designed to be replaced 15 to 25 years after the start of operations. If you count from 1987, which was when the MRT started, 15 years would be 2002, 25 years would be 2012.

Sleepers are not expected to be completely replaced until the end of 2016. That is clearly four years after the last date for renewal.”
