Positive response to SMRT campaigns

Commuters have offered positive responses to SMRT's efforts to serve them better and keep abreast of ongoing projects to improve the North-South and East-West Lines, the train operator said yesterday.

The results were announced after two communication campaigns meant to boost SMRT's interaction with over three million commuters that travel through its network daily. The operator said the outreach efforts also enable it to gather valuable commuter feedback on areas of concern.

The first interactive campaign saw Travel Experience Terminals deployed at eight MRT stations and four bus interchanges since June 1, for commuters to share feedback on staff service.

The second campaign saw some 295,000 homes along the East-West Line invited to share their thoughts via an online survey to gauge their understanding of the multi-year, multi-programme efforts to renew the ageing rail network.

Two teens under probe for vandalism

Police are investigating two 15-year-old male suspects who are believed to be involved in a case of vandalism in Marsiling Drive.

Their identities were established after "extensive ground enquiries and protracted investigations", the police said in a statement yesterday. The case was reported to the police on June 14 at 11.40am. The 16th to 22nd floor parapet wall at Block 9, Marsiling Drive, was spray-painted with graffiti.
