MRT COMMUTERS TO GO THROUGH ENHANCED SECURITY

Written by Val Alvern Ligo

MRT commuters soon have to go through airport-like security checks before they go on their morning commute – walking through a metal detector and placing their bags through an X-ray scanner. Starting 12 November, enhanced security screening will soon be implemented at select MRT stations, according to the Land Transport Authority (LTA). In addition, handheld metal detectors will be gradually introduced at bus interchanges and MRT stations. data from the trial will be used to “streamline and optimise its security screening processes and reduce the future impact on daily rail operations”, according to the LTA. “We will also collect feedback from commuters and public transport operators to improve the effectiveness of future security operations and emergency exercises.”
