$126 mil to instal screen doors
SMRT will spend $126 mil to instal screen doors in its stations to prevent people falling onto the track accidentally or intentional. Another $29 to instal CCTV to monitor such incidents. Should these money be spent to prevent people from jumping on the track if they already planned to do so? If that is the case, HDB should instal grills on every floor of flats to prevent people from falling. For those who wanted to jump, such measures are a complete waste of money. Even the CCTV is only good to tell you what happened after they have jumped. For accidental falls, some minimal railings should do. If the MRT reasoning is valid, then screen doors must be erected to all the roads to prevent people from straying onto the roads. We even need to block out all the canals to prevent people from falling in.
