SMRT: Guards didn’t do night patrols at Bishan depot

For condominiums, if the guards are not doing their job patrolling around, intrusions happening cannot be caught red-handed. Thefts can happen or worse, injury to the resident may happen.

SMRT: Guards didn't do night patrols at Bishan depot
Operator reprimands security agency; work to upgrade fences not done yet at its depots

Checks by The Straits Times yesterday showed that it is not just SMRT's Bishan depot that has yet to be fitted with steel welded mesh fencing as had been recommended.

Its Ulu Pandan depot has not been reinforced either.

Yesterday, SMRT said that work to strengthen the perimeter of the Ulu Pandan depot had yet to start because of a two-month delay in work at its Changi depot.

Mr Goh Chee Kong, SMRT's senior vice-president for communications and services, said work is scheduled to start at Ulu Pandan next week, and will be completed by the end of October.
