PAP dinosaur Liu Thai Ker talking cock about Singapore’s growth and train breakdowns

Too much credit has been given to Liu Thai Ker, former housing chief planner, so much so that he has continued talking cock at 79.

In CNA’s “Singapore cannot stop growing because of train breakdowns, says former chief planner“, Liu refused to accept the fact that MRT breakdown has a lot to do with bad planning.  Instead, like PAP, Liu claimed it “has everything to do with administration (and) management”.
ura6It is common sense that long-term planning must take into account the projected population. The PAP government of course did just that except that the projected population was way off the mark. And this is the root cause of massive MRT disruptions, worsened by poor maintenance and incompetent leadership.

According to NLB, Singapore’s MRT system was “based on a 1967 study conducted by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Singapore State and City Planning Department”.  Then, the projected population in 1992 was only 3.4 million.

In the 1991 URA Concept Plan, PAP was still projecting a population of only 4 million in 40 to 50 years’ time.  No thanks to Lao Goh, we hit URA’s 4-million projected population in 2000, 9-years’ time instead of 40 to 50 years.  URA’s Concept Plan:
ura4The construction of our MRT system never took into account the current population.  This is a fact which Liu should not suka suka ignore as if URA is a useless organization.  Don’t try to pull a fast one on Singaporeans as if MSM is the only source of information and citizens are dumb.

In 2014, Liu “said he thought Singapore’s population could comfortably be even larger than it is today, and that planners should prepare for a population of 10 million“.

Liu was being silly because Singapore did not even plan for a MRT system for a 5-million population!

If Liu were a good planner, he would have first highlighted the need to revamp the broken MRT system because it is the backbone of our public transport system.

But while our public transport system clearly has suffered a “slipped disk” and recently warded in ICU during weekends, Liu has continued to bury his head in the sand.

Pushing the limits of absurdity further, Liu “revealed that as a planner, he had planned for Singapore’s growth 100 years into the future“.
ura5If 100-year plans existed, PAP should disclose them.  Or this may constitute fake news by MSM.

The glory days of propaganda are over and Liu would be a fool to assume that Singaporeans are so stupid as to be unable to recognize his ‘straw man’.

The former chief housing planner appears to be another PAP dinosaur with a mindset stuck in the stone age.

To date, he has yet to offer any solution to infrastructure issues created by PAP but only knows how to keep talking cock.

    What do you expect from a guy that says 10M population for S’pore is ok???

  2. Edward Frank says:

    I’m also a urban designer, planning has everything to do with MRT and buses especially in Transport Planning. He’s not just covering up himself also for the Transport Minister!! Can you ask him if Transport Planning is also part of Urban Planning??

  3. And to 5hink the communists contented themselves with 5 year plans. Losers.

    Seriously 100 year plans are fantasy not policy. It’s this pernicious attitude throughput Singapore officialdom that it has to brag how exceptional they are in human history. Or else no one would take a minisicule country seriously.

    Same goes for the pay except that it’s an inferiority complex no one will take us seriously because some mayors in other countries make more than us.
