Australian PM visits Indonesia

Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull will visit Indonesia today, seeking to improve ties with an important neighbour after relations were badly strained by spying rows, executions of drug convicts and tough asylum-seeker policies during his predecessor Tony Abbott's time in office. The visit is important for both sides due to vital trade links and cooperation on counter-terrorism, and as China becomes more assertive in the region.

Public transport operator SMRT is offering a first-hand look at its new Maintenance Operations Centre at the Bishan depot.
