SMRT taking steps to reduce slips and falls at stations

We thank Mr Wee Boon Lim for his feedback (Wet, slippery stairs at Bukit Gombak MRT station; May 3).

We are sorry to hear about Mr Wee's experience, and wish him a full recovery.

We are taking steps to minimise the risk of slips and falls at our MRT station premises.

One immediate measure is to complete the installation of anti-slip material at staircases open to the weather, including those at Bukit Gombak MRT station.

This will enhance commuter safety when using staircases at MRT stations.
